Working Backwards

This story discusses the challenges faced by Britain’s pension fund.  Increased life expectancy and the over regulation of private pension plans means fewer Britons will be receiving pension funds.

Britain’s situation is similar to that of the United States Social Security program which is expected to go bankrupt within 50 years.

America would be wise to look at the problems faced by European social democracies when crafting social policy in the US.
