Public Pensions: The Silent Crisis


Taxpayer liability for public-employee pensions is the silent crisis that threatens to dwarf every spending priority in the state of Minnesota and inflict severe financial harm on our economy.

We have two different portals for reading about our analysis of the problem.

Pension Reform Project

This is our “go to” source of information on public employee pensions. It is filled with tables, charts, and other items to illustrate the problem. It also has links to news stories and official studies on Minnesota’s pension obligations.

The institute blog

Almost every day, the fellows and staff of the Minnesota Free Market Institute offer new commentaries on the issues of the day. Public pensions are one of the topics we address. The link above will take you to those blog entries specifically written about the public pension crisis.
