The Great Recession has wreaked havoc on Americans' retirement security, battering pensions and 401(k)s and destroying home equity. However, the downturn has only exacerbated deeper structural problems with our retirement system, including the troubled transition from defined-benefit to defined-contribution plans, widespread underfunding of public pensions, and over-reliance on ever-rising home values. How can Americans recover retirement security, and what role should pensions play going forward? Please join the New America Foundation's Economic Growth Program, the University of California Retirement Security Institute, and a diverse group of academics, professionals, and policymakers for a dynamic forum that will identify the "new normal" for retirement security, examine the perilous state of public pensions, and consider best practices for reform. http://www.newamerica.net/events/2010/new_retirement_realities
