Th following article from Time, “Can We Handle the Truth? Public Pensions Are Short on Cash”, by Dan Kadlec discusses the looming public pension crisis.  Located at http://business.time.com/2012/10/19/can-we-handle-the-truth-public-pensions-are-short-on-cash/, the article discusses the problems with pension funding of public plans.  The author makes an excellent point regarding the discrepancies between assumed and actual return rates.  As a result, many of these plans are significantly underfunded.
