Weekend Serving of Sense on Cents
Posted by Larry Doyle on June 22, 2013 8:24 AM |
For those who care to dig a little deeper in order to gain a greater degree of ’sense on cents’, I welcome sharing a few commentaries and reports that I found to be of very real interest.
Interested in getting a decidedly wider-eyed and detailed view of the world than what might commonly be delivered elsewhere? Grab a second cup of coffee and span the globe as these noted economists discuss an array of critically important international issues:
1. Ian Bremmer and Nouriel Roubini Unveil the New Abnormal; Institutional Investor
What was really going on within the credit agencies? Talk about aiding and abetting . . .
2. The Last Mystery of the Financial Crisis, Matt Taibbi; Rolling Stone
For those with an interest in navigating the intersection of education and municipal finance, I welcome highlighting that:
. . . despite all the furor around retirement costs for public employees in general and teachers in particular, there has been distressingly little discussion about what impact future retirement costs will have on future district budgets—and on the well-being of their schools, teachers, and students.
3. The Big Squeeze: Retirement Costs and School District Budgets, Dara Zeehandelaar and Amber M. Winkler; Thomas B. Fordham Institute.
I hope you might enjoy (if that is the appropriate word) these reads as much as I did. I thank the regular readers who brought these to my attention.
