Public Pensions: What's The Real Story?

Center for New York City Affairs | http://newschool.edu/milano/nycaffairs

Conventional wisdom blames generous public-sector pensions for state and local budget deficits and for diverting funds from other essential services. Amid demands that officials roll back pension promises, it's clear the problem--and possible solutions--are not nearly so simple. What's at stake for retirement security and government fiscal stability? A conversation about the history, purpose, costs and benefits of public pensions.

2 Eduardo Rodríguez-Montemayor: Diaspora Direct Investment Policy: Options for Development In today's globalized world, goods and capital are flowing as never before. The movement of people across borders has also enlarged significantly. About 215 million people live away from their home country and many members of such Diasporas are prospering abroad and are eager to extend such success by investing in their homeland. In this paper we explore the impacts of Diaspora Direct Investment (DDI) on international development, i.e. we look at how direct investments from foreign companies connected to Diaspora members (i.e. diaspora-owned firms or firms with diaspora members in the top management) boost productive activities in the home country of such people. One of the main advantages of DDI is that it is more stable than other types of FDI, particularly during unfavorable economic conditions, because of the emotional connections of diaspora members to their country of origin. Moreover, such companies engaging in DDI are often seen as the ¿first movers¿ into a country due to potential advantages they have in terms of knowing the culture and having social networks in the home country. This may act as a catalyst for further investment from other companies by providing market and operational information about the homeland to potential investors. We focus particularly on the experience of Latin America and analyze policy options to design comprehensive diaspora strategies that maximize investments, institutional development and the flow of talent and ideas. Such strategies, which would ideally involve Diaspora members in their formulation, can give Diaspora entrepreneurs support in terms of networking, mentoring and training (e.g. business incubators). Nonetheless, a more mature stage of diaspora engagement would be achieved with the development of venture capital funds as well as other sources of financing (e.g. matching funds). The smart utilization of digital technologies for connecting Diasporas empowers all such policy options.

Race and the Subprime Crisis: The Future of Minority Neighborhoods - The New School Some critics blame the Community Reinvestment Act for the mortgage meltdown that prompted the current deep recession. Others point to the abuses of subprime lending and Wall Street manipulation. Yet questions about the impact of the economic collapse on African American communities—and about the future of neighborhood stability, consumer access to credit, and the role of race in public policy—remain unanswered. As the federal government acts to reverse the economy's decline, what have we learned, and what does the future hold?

Community-Based Development in New York - The New School for Public Engagement For decades, deliberations over land use in New York City have included developers, community boards, elected officials, and city agencies such as the Department of City Planning. Do the people who live and work in city neighborhoods have a sufficient voice? Do residents improve the process or impede progress? Who is best positioned to determine a neighborhood's needs, and what are the best structures for public participation? What does the future hold for the city as it recovers from the current recession?

4 How to Incentivise Sustainable Finance - Long Finance Panel Discussion Many critics claim that the problem with economics is that it has no theory of value. From early economists, such as Smith, Ricardo and Marx, to later economists, pinning value to economics has proved disputatious. In turn, problems with understanding value reverberate to problems with money, problems with the long term and problems with sustainability.

This panel discussion at this Long Finance conference will examine the question of "How to Incentivise Sustainable Finance"? The panellists are (from left to right): - Professor Michael Mainelli - Dr Matthew Kiernan - Valéry Lucas-Leclin - Joss Tantram
