Event Details

In The Buckeye Institute’s latest policy report, Worse Than You Think: Cincinnati’s Underfunded Pensions and an Analysis of Potential Reforms, former principal deputy commissioner of Social Security Andrew Biggs concludes that Cincinnati’s pension system is far less fiscally sound than most people realize, facing unfunded liabilities of over $2.5 billion and a funding ratio of only 35%.  Please join us for a lunchtime discussion, in which Dr. Biggs will be joined by noted economist Scott Beaulier to discuss the state of public employee pension systems, possible reforms proposed in Cincinnati, and what can be done to provide for public employee pensions while reducing long-term risk.

In 2005, as an associate director of the White House National Economic Council, he worked on Social Security reform.

What We Are

The Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions is a non-profit, non-partisan research and education institute, or "think tank."  We are funded by a coalition of individuals, corporations, and foundations who share our ideals and support our work.  We do not seek, nor do we accept, funding from government sources at any level.

What We Believe

  • That freedom, opportunity, responsibility, and community should drive public policy.
  • That quality research and data-driven solutions should rise above mere partisanship and are a necessary foundation for healthy debate.
  • That a limited, transparent, and accountable government best fulfills its duties to its citizens; best protects their rights and freedoms; and creates an environment for growth and opportunity.
  • That creating a vibrant, flexible, and competitive economic environment allows Ohioans to pursue their hopes and dreams and makes Ohio a better place to live and work.

What We Do

  • Set the policy debate in Ohio by researching and promoting relevant and practical solutions to Ohio's most pressing public policy issues.
  • Build coalitions of like-minded individuals and organizations committed to public policy that is driven by the best information available but also by our ideals and values.
  • Engage and educate citizens and policy makers in the need for reform grounded in freedom, responsibility, opportunity and community.
  • Support public policy solutions that expand freedom and limit government; that reward personal responsibility and hold government accountable; and that free workers and empower communities.
