Quoted @theoracle99

The evidence of McKinsey’s contempt for the law & ethics grows. It is similar to evidence of collusion between UK banks & insolvency practices & advisers(PWC, KPMG etc) that refuse to enforce solid ‘client’ claims against their instructing banks. Are we nearing the tipping point?

Instructing banks?

Did Pete Buttigieg really work for them for 8 years?

I believe he left McKinsey in 2010, the same year the bankruptcy advisory division was formed.

But how....does McKinsey have a....fking hedge fund? 🤨🧐🤨🧐

It invests money for employees and retirees. Part of the benefits package.

Impunidad total y da tremenda ansiedad el solo verlo. Imaginen estar allí 😫 https://twitter.com/MillyMendezpr/status/1184121818417913856 …

Appalling gun battle in the streets of San Juan. The person who caught it on video took quite a risk.

But when I think of “an industry,” I think of smokestacks and assembly lines.

Quoted @cate_long

Current governor of Puerto Rico will file amicus in federal case against cockfighting in PR which Congress recently banned. Another example of how PR moves in the opposite direction of seeking statehood. #muniland https://twitter.com/wandavazquezg/status/1183024451417456641 …

Is cockfighting really an industry?

We get 19 years of financials on Jeffrey Epstein's Virgin Islands-based companies but many mysteries remain about his money management and DNA company - story with @steveeder https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/03/business/jeffrey-epstein-southern-trust.html … (more to come)

Love that balance sheet — all assets and no liabilities.

Quoted @Terpin8or

they really aren't cutting anything from PR pensions. any cuts will be reversed within a handful of years based on how far above projections PR consistently comes in at and the federal Medicaid funding which is not baked into projections

The bigger cuts happened before Hurricane Maria, when accruals were frozen. That saved more money, but people didn’t really feel it because it affected active workers, not retirees. Cuts now are smaller, but more visible.

Now it is really a book!

Now it is really a book!

Hi Allison! Sorry I’ve been hard to find. Data-analysis class is over and I can rejoin the world.

Quoted @doazic

Debt to GDP ratio isn’t as bad in those states. Cuts won’t be as severe.

If you count pensions as “debt,” the ratio is pretty daunting. (Or unfunded pensions.) If you just count tax-supported bonds, then yes, the ratio’s a lot better. But retirees certainly think of their pensions as debts.

@marywalshnyt The discussion is returning and this time it will be informed and rational, if Friday’s New York Times article is an indication. https://wirepoints.org/puerto-rico-reigniting-bankruptcy-debate-for-illinois-and-other-insolvent-states/ … #muniland #twill

I like your column, Mark. Here’s to an informed and rational future!

And that Sistema 2000 felt like a Ponzi scheme

They finally split off the defined benefit plan from the defined contribution plan this year, I think.

Thanks for responding. Year 2000 “Reforma” plan was not a defined benefit plan but a defined contribution plan. I know b/c I was enrolled in it and contributed to it 2001-2005. It was a 401k type set up where retirement benefits were based on your deposits. I rolled it over.

It’s a good example of inter-generational inequity. Sorry, these tweets are all in different threads so I hope this makes sense.

And because the money for the two plans was pooled, your contributions ended up “funding” the traditional pension benefits, because the government wasn’t funding them properly.

I don’t think those “accounts” were real. There was still one big pooled fund for everybody, whether they were in the older plan or Sistema 2000.
