California’s Pension Crisis and How to Fix It
Recorded: Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Senior Fellow Lawrence McQuillan, author of California Dreaming appears on KUHL radio’s Andy Caldwell show. McQuillan talks about California’s public pension system and how it is on a road to financial ruin. The state’s pension payout is gobbling up the state’s budget and other services are suffering. Politicians often take “pension holidays” and don’t contribute during periods of economic prosperity and the pension funds suffer even more. McQuillan’s book contains solutions, such as private sector 401k-type retirement plans, which fulfill promises made to retirees and keeps the state solvent.

How to Resolve the Public Pension Crisis: An Interview with Lawrence McQuillan
Recorded: Tuesday, June 9, 2015

Senior Fellow Lawrence McQuillan, author of California Dreaming appears on KPBS radio in San Diego. McQuillan discusses the public pension system in California and offers a detailed plan on how to fix the underfunded system. His plan would convert public pension systems across the country into defined contribution plans, similar to private 401k-type retirement plans. This would protect taxpayers from bailing out failed public pension systems and also protect current retirees from having bankruptcy courts take away their promised pension benefits. McQuillan also talks about other reform ideas to fix the man-made financial disaster facing many cities and states across the United States.
