Misleading Newsnight story on Universities Pension Scheme

BBC Newsnight carried a  story on October 24 presenting the USS pension scheme as having a ‘black hole’ that will need to be filled by increased student fees.

Denis Leech, Professor of Economics at the University of Warwick, has written a response to this on his blog: Misleading Newsnight story on Universities Pension Scheme.

He has also written a letter to the Times Higher Newspaper, Accounting Tricks and Pension Deficits. A full version is available at Universities’ Pensions Deficit is not Believable.
