Pensions: A Wordwide, But Avoidable Crisis

Nationalized Pensions Are Going Bust

OCTOBER 01, 2003 by NORMAN BARRY

Almost every country in the economically advanced world is worried about nationalized pensions. American statisticians have some grisly fun predicting on what day of the week and in what year the Social Security system will finally go bust. Or whether Medicare will be broke first.

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
