Pension Crisis Intensifying As Dollar Rallies and Interest Rates Rise

News
Public pensions from from New York, New Jersey, Illinois to California (see below) and everywhere between are underfunded and failing (1,2). Shifting demographics and unrealistic expectations for future returns for funds loaded with public sector debt in a rising yield environment is threatening insolvency of some of the largest public pension funds in the United States.  While a growing minority is withdrawing money from these funds in anticipation of insolvency, the majority still believes that the government will take care of them.  This will change as the crisis intensifies as the dollar rallies and yields continue to rise.


Headline: Stanford University's Pension Tracker Pegs Total California Pension Debt at $1 trillion or $93,000 Per California Household in 2015, Up 19% from 2014

Stanford University’s pension tracker database pegs the market value of California’s total pension debt at $1 trillion or $93,000 per California household in 2015. (see SIEPR video above for a quick summary of the database and how to use it)

In 2014, California’s total pension debt was calculated at $77,700 per household, but has increased dramatically in response to abysmal investment returns at California’s public pension funds that hover at or below zero percent annual returns.

Digital Revolution Is Displacing Workers

News
The digital revolution, a mixture of technology and artificial intelligence (AI), will displace millions of jobs from cashiers to teachers. Millions of workers struggling to find their purpose in a changing world will turn to government for help and/or support. Governments struggling with contracting tax revenues as socialism drives the AI revolution faster than people expect will disappoint more than help.



Headline: Amazon just launched a cashier-free convenience store

Amazon just unveiled a grocery store without lines or checkout counters. Amazon Go, a 1800-square-foot retail space located in the company’s hometown of Seattle, lets shoppers just grab the items they want and leave; the order gets charged to their Amazon account afterwards.

Amazon Go works by using computer vision and sensors to detect what items you’re taking out of the store. You start by scanning an app as you enter the Amazon Go shop. You do your normal shopping, and the sensors throughout the store identify the items in your cart and charge them to your account when you walk out the door. It’ll feel like shoplifting, except you’re actually being watched by more cameras than you can imagine.
