Event description

Description

The Grassroot Institute of Hawaii is releasing a new report that outlines how policymakers could resolve Hawaii’s financially dangerous public pension crisis.

The “crisis” is that the state Employees’ Retirement System is facing unfunded liabilities of almost $13 billion, equal to 46 percent of its benefits obligations — a huge risk for Hawaii’s current and retired state and county government employees, as well as for Hawaii’s already-beleaguered taxpayers.

The report, “How to resolve Hawaii’s public pension debt crisis,” points the way toward bringing the state benefits program back into balance, and will be discussed by Keli‘i Akina, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, and Joe Kent, the institute’s vice president of research.

Join us for this special presentation, and pick up a copy of the report at the event. Admission is $10 and includes light pupus and sandwiches.

For more information, please call (808) 591-9193 or e-mail info@grassrootinstitute.org.
