Spartacus It was you who referred to teachers, suggesting that they would be incapable of saving to supplement their pension under the proposed CARE scheme. The States of Guernsey is indeed solvent today, but it won't be in 20-30 years time if the current scheme continues as is, as the liabilities will keep growing at a far faster rate than the assets are likely to grow on an annualised basis. The island cannot afford to go into a much larger annual deficit each year by making much bigger annual contributions to help eradicate the current £300m shortfall. To do so means eating even further into the capital reserve fund, which would be depleted and then what?
