Click here to view "Troubled Pensions," an interview I gave to CNN Money anchor Poppy Harlow on November 24, 2008. (The piece aired on November 26, 2008.) The roughly five minute discussion centered on four questions, including:
- Is Congressional reform of the Pension Protection Act of 2006 needed or should plan sponsors be forced to top off underfunded plans?
- Will the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation be able to handle traditional plans of ailing auto manufacturers?
- Will plan sponsors be tempted to assume more investment risk in order to make up for current losses?
- Is pension litigation on the rise?
