Retirement Heist: How Companies Plunder and Profit from the Nest Eggs of American Workers

program date: 
Mon, 03/12/2012

 

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod interview Ellen Schultz about her book, "Retirement Heist: How Companies Plunder and Profit from the Nest Eggs of American Workers."

It's no secret that hundreds of companies have been slashing pensions and health coverage earned by millions of retirees. Employers blame an aging workforce, stock market losses, and spiraling costs — what they call "a perfect storm" of external forces that has forced them to take drastic measures.

But this so-called retirement crisis is no accident. Ellen E. Schultz, award-winning investigative reporter for the Wall Street Journal, reveals how large companies and the retirement industry — benefits consultants, insurance companies, and banks — have all played a huge and hidden role in the death spiral of American pensions and benefits.

A little over a decade ago, most companies had more than enough set aside to pay the benefits earned by two generations of workers, no matter how long they lived. But by exploiting loopholes, ambiguous regulations, and new accounting rules, companies essentially turned their pension plans into piggy banks, tax shelters, and profit centers.

Drawing on original analysis of company data, government filings, internal corporate documents, and confidential memos, Schultz uncovers decades of widespread deception during which employers have exaggerated their retiree burdens while lobbying for government handouts, secretly cutting pensions, tricking employees, and misleading shareholders.

Ellen E. Schultz is an investigative reporter for The Wall Street Journal who has covered the so-called retirement crisis for more than a decade. Her reporting has led to Congressional hearings, proposed legislation, and investigations by the Treasury and the GAO.

Schultz has won dozens of journalism awards for economics, financial, and investigative reporting, including three Polk Awards, two Loeb awards, and a National Press Club award. In 2003, Schultz was part of a team of Wall Street Journal reports awarded the Pulitzer Prize, for articles on corporate scandals.

Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey speak with Jessie Klein, author of The Bully Society: School Shootings and the Crisis of Bullying in America 's Schools. Based on extensive research and interviews with wide-ranging bullying victims, and backed by her decades of experience as a sociologist and educator, Klein uncovers the roots of bullying and its devastating results--from a rise in teen depression to the horrific school shootings. Klein says students learn—not only from other students, but also from teachers, coaches, parents, and other influential adults—that the drive to “get even” and the ability to fight back and win are essential to developing "character"—embedded in values associated with hyper self-reliance and independence.

JESSIE KLEIN, PhD, MSW, M.Ed., is Assistant Professor of Sociology and Criminal Justice at Adelphi University, where she specializes in school violence, friendship, gender, and society. Her work has appeared in USA Today,Newsday, and the New York Times, as well as many scholarly journals. During her more than twenty years in education, she also served as a teacher, school social worker, Acting Assistant Principal of Guidance, and social work professor.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
