The Government Debt Iceberg
Institute of Economic Affairs
13 Mar 2014 United States, Europe (including EU) Taxation, State Pensions, Longevity, European Union issues, Countries - US
The Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) has published a report which looks at Government debt in Europe and the United States.

30 Jan 2008 United Kingdom Local Government, Disclosure, Accounting

Pensions legislation risks bankrupting British industry
Pensions legislation risks bankrupting British industry
Institute of Economic Affairs
13 Dec 2006 United Kingdom Surpluses and Deficits, Legislation
In a study, published by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), actuary Nick Silver estimates that the total deficit of final salary private pension schemes is nearly £500bn on a buyout basis (compared with £124bn on standard accounting bases). The study also finds that, through short-sighted legislation, successive governments have added to the cost of final salary pension schemes, making them unattractive to employers and hastening their closure.
