DESCRIPTION:

Can Colorado citizens solve the conflict between their good intentions and their financial limitations? In November, Standard & Poor’s alerted the state of Colorado that its good credit rating on public debt was at risk if it did not address both the unfunded liabilities in, and insufficient contributions to, its employee retirement funds. No longer able to conceal these problems, both the Colorado’s Public Employee Retirement Association (“PERA”) and the Governor’s office, will be presenting a bailout plan to the legislature in early 2018. Gain insight into the debate regarding a (rather immediate) Colorado financial deficiency that is roughly equal to $30,000 per Colorado household. This short course will provide you with the understanding necessary to see through the haze that will no doubt shroud the capitol during these debates and discussions, and the course will culminate in late April to learn about PERA’s future. Tuition includes $45 for no weekly handouts (available BEFORE class meets each week.)
