    Tricky, <The poster child for Greek pensions is the (alleged) ability for hairdressers to retire in their early 50's because they are engaged in a "hazardous profession".>

    You ever see what happens if a hairdresser screws up a woman's hair?!? lol

    Any reason the 5th major Canadian bank, Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) was left out of your article? What do you think of their prospects for the next 3-5 years?

    Disc: long BNS and RY

    Bob123, <I can think of no example where government deregulated something and it got better and/or cheaper.
    Not. One. Example.>
    Not sure if it meets the definition of "deregulation" but how about the breakup of Standard oil in the early 1900 or MaBell in the '80's?

    <It’s like an ice cube melting in your hand. It doesn’t disappear all at once. It just slowly melts. And many unprepared investors will see their retirement hopes melt with it.>
    I think unprepared investors will instead see the dry ice of their portfolios sublimate, not melt, and wonder "Where did it all go?"

    I have had to re-sign in 5 times just today. Twice while navigating between articles. Getting really frustrating.

    Monsanto needs to invent a "Smart Roundup" so as to minimize collateral damage.

    Isn't strange Bernie won the popular NH vote in a landslide (approx. 60/40) but comes out of NH with 2 less delegates than Hillary? Perhaps he is correct that the game is rigged....
