The pension crisis is affecting budgets in city after city and in ever increasing amounts. Please consider the latest in San Diego: Millions needed for city pensions . Just when San Diego city officials thought they had closed a $179 million budget gap, another has opened up because more money will be needed to pay for employee pensions. The city will have to contribute $231.7 million to the retirement fund in the fiscal year that starts in July. That’s up $19 million from the forecast used when the last budget gap was closed in December. The increase is a result of the fund’s investment losses and more employees ...
Tax deposits are formally entrusted to the Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund, the Federal Disability Insurance Trust Fund, the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund, or the Federal Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Fund. 3 The main part of the program is sometimes abbreviated OASDI (Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance) or RSDI (Retirement, Survivors, and Disability Insurance). When initially signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935 as part of his New Deal , the term Social Security covered unemployment insurance as well.

Interview with Peter Lavelle (Russia Today) | Sublime Oblivion
Peter is opposed to Western media hegemony, considering it neither fair nor useful, and firmly believes that global media should feature a diversity of voices from all cultural traditions; as such, the rise of alternate forums such as Al Jazeera and Russia Today are a boon for media consumers everywhere. Peter Lavelle actualizes this philosophy in his own CrossTalk program, in which controversial topics from France’s burqa ban to the collapse of  Soviet Amerika are discussed: agree with him or not, one can certainly never get bored listening. The serious Russia watcher is recommended to join his “Untimely ... market research, surveys and trends


Solving a Looming U.S. Retirement Crisis - BusinessWeek
Google my name, and you'll see my photo next to a blog calling me "the most dangerous woman in America." Why does a U.S. News & World Report blog put me up there with Typhoid Mary and Octomom? In October 2008, just as the financial crisis was gathering steam, I told a congressional committee that it's time to reinvent the 401(k). I suggested a government-guaranteed alternative consisting of diverse and prudent assets such as blue-chip stocks and corporate and Treasury bonds.

Early promise gave way to frustration
THE first decision taken by Kevin Rudd's cabinet in 2007 was to approve a $1 billion proposal for computers in schools, brought to the table by Julia Gillard. The so-called education revolution had begun. At its next meeting, the new cabinet focused on a plan to eliminate Work Choices and create a new industrial regime -- another of Gillard's babies. Rudd's first symbolic act as prime minister had been to sign the formal instrument for Australia to ratify the Kyoto Protocol. Soon after he was heading to Bali for a UN climate-change conference and a date with Ban Ki-moon on the "greatest moral challenge of our ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
