In an unexpectedly objective move for an actuarial service, Watson Wyatt released oppositionary opinions on W's private accounts for Socual Security, one for and one against. Unexpected for me because I figured actuaries would weigh in on my side of this issue in claiming DB plans are alive and kicking.
I haven't read the reports yet, but I'm curious that any educated analysis would come out in favor of privatized accounts. Heck, the SSA says it ain't so bad, and even a good majority of Americans think it ain't so bad (ok - maybe this is taking some polls out of context).
At any rate - perhaps still a few good consulting firms out there. I was sure all the DB companies would be trying to derail an attempt for the largest DB plan in America to go semi-DC.
