Public Pension Crisis—Lawrence McQuillan interviewed on KQED radio’s Forum
Recorded: Monday, July 6, 2015

Senior Fellow Lawrence McQuillan, author of California Dreaming is interviewed by Michael Krasny on KQED radio’s Forum program. McQuillan tells of his plan to resolve the pension crisis in California and other states by switching from the current system to a 401(k) style of retirement plan, as most private sector companies use. This way, McQuillan argues, the public employee retirement system would be portable and transparent while remaining solvent.

Recorded: Friday, March 7, 2014

Senior Fellow Randy T. Simmons, co-editor of Aquanomics, looks at the battles over water in the western United States. Thirsty citizens of growing cities, farmers, factories and environmentalists are in a fight for a natural resource that is priced arbitrarily.
