Back in 2008, I blogged about The Funded Status of Public Employee Pension Plans, Out of Sight, Out of Mind.

Not any more. In the post-2008 New Economy, there’s been a lot of media attention being given to developments – or not – on pension plans for State public employees. It’s a complicated matter about which to understand and to follow the now almost daily developments.

You can find that information on Pension Tsunami, which I mentioned in that 2008 blog post. It’s a website project of the California Public Policy Center edited by Jack Dean, and now completing its 8th year.

While its primary focus is on California’s public employee pension crisis, it also monitors developments in other public employee retirement programs, plans in the private sector, and social security. Irrespective of your politics, you should keep in on your radar screen.
