10-12 years ago, the high end I recall people getting out of school was in the $60-$65k range.

$90k = 2.75% to 3.3% inflation over 12 or 10 years, so not outside the realm of possibility.

Fixing problems isn't zero sum. You don't have to focus on problem 1, leaving problems 2, 3, 4, 5 until some amorphous "when we get to it."

Fix them all.

The military is planning on spending $1.5 trillion ($1,500,000,000,000) on the F-35 program. A jet that doesn't work. At anything it's designed to do.

I've ceased reading any of the major newspapers except the odd breaking news.

As time passes, I've become less and less convinced that most journalists have anything worth saying.

I think I still qualify as a 'younger' actuary (I hope). I'm frequently impressed at how sharp our old guys are, even the ones that are 30+ years removed from nuts and bolts work.

Emmental / Gruyere are the big ones. Appenzeller is also excellent.
