    By what possible standard? This pace would equate to roughly 20 million jobs over a eight year period.

    Chile's Retirees Find Shortfall in Private Plan


    Nearly 25 years ago, Chile embarked on a sweeping experiment that has since been emulated, in one way or another, in a score of other countries. Rather than finance pensions through a system to which workers, employers and the government all contributed, millions of people began to pay 10 percent of their salaries to private investment accounts that they controlled.


    But now that the first generation of workers to depend on the new system is beginning to retire, Chileans are finding that it is falling far short of what was originally advertised under the authoritarian government of Gen. Augusto Pinochet.

    For all the program's success in economic terms, the government continues to direct billions of dollars to a safety net for those whose contributions were not large enough to ensure even a minimum pension approaching $140 a month.

    GOP+ We broke the economy, but don't like the way you are fixing it!
    I don't care even a little bit about so-called predatory lenders. That's all on the borrowers as far as I'm concerned.

    Yes, NOT refuting FACTS is using ad homs, sorry you don't understand that, what he wrote, whether it was on Disney.com or WSJ, doesn't matter, it's the MATERIAL which is FACT BASED!

    All the right wingers NOW are trying to rewrite Chile a success, AFTER Gov't took over industry again, propped up the failed SS privatization, etc


    BTW, HE SOURCES HIS MATERIALS QUITE WELL

    To claim that GWB's growth was a product of a bubble is just a lefty talking point.

    Right, because it's the borrowers who signed the checks *shaking head*
