Roeder and Tatala Published in Forbes on the Hungarian Disease

Young Voices Director Fred Roeder and Marek Tatala were published in Forbes writing about pension reforms:

In September of this year, Polish prime minister Donald Tusk announced his intention to undo pension system reforms and seize parts of the mandatory private pension funds. If implemented, this plan will lead to a pension fund nationalization a la Hungary under Victor Orban and Argentina under the Kirchners. The law would undo the successful achievements of the Polish transformation since 1989, which was achieved through privatization and not nationalization.

Advocate Rachel Burger Published in TownHall

Associate Cathy Reisenwitz Published in Save Jersey

Young Voices Associate Cathy Reisenwitz was published in Save Jersey writing about a recent controversy involving Governor Chris Christie and a public school teacher:

With those results, it’s difficult to see why anyone who advocates for students would want to see them denied the opportunity to succeed. The claim that expanding school choice in New Jersey is hurting public schools seems pretty ludicrous when you realize that, according to the Huffington Post, New Jersey’s property taxes are already the highest in the nation, and schools use most of the money.

What alternatives to school choice does BAT offer? Under BAT in Action, the site has one activity: Calling the White House to ask President Obama to replace successful Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. I guess now they can add getting in verbal altercations with governors to the list. But I’m not sure how either will help New Jersey’s children.

The Bosnian news-portals Javno.ba and interNOVINE published the two authors today. Admir and Marek wrote this piece in a series of articles on the so-called “Hungarian Disease” of nationalizing private pensions. The “Hungarian Disease” is currently infecting Poland and thus threatening the sustainability of the Polish pension system and alienating people’s right to keep their private savings.
