Public Pensions: Old Dog New Trick

After some prompting I consulted someone in their early 20s and learned how to insert charts right into a post on WordPress.  Since the posts I wrote in December, based on long term Census Bureau data on public employee pensions in New York and New Jersey over 50 years, are still what most people are reading on “Saying the Unsaid in New York” one month later, I have edited them to embed the charts.

They are, in sequence, a post of the use of a fraudulent rate of return and asset value combination to cover up the selling out of the common future, which includes the entire database, a discussion of teacher pensions in New York and New Jersey, a discussion of the big general pension plans that cover most public employees in New York and New Jersey, and a discussion of police and fire pension plans.  The latter three posts now have charts in the text, rather than just in the spreadsheet attachment.  If that’s helpful, you can read the posts now if you haven’t already.  Scroll down to find them.  And scroll down further, and on the “Helpful Background and Greatest Hits” and “Latest Public Finance Spreadsheets” pages to find other things worth reading.
