Default Pensions after tax cut

What will be the impact of the tax cut on pensions?

Might corporations be less likely to keep a pension? With the decrease in corporate tax rates, contributions wont give As much of a tax break. And executives could end up payong at a higher tax rate on retirement benefits than they got when contributing.

I have serious doubts this tax cut survives long past 2020.

Maybe so. Yet I am reminded of a saying I heard long ago, that nearly everything is easier to get into than out of.

And it seems unlikely to me that the tax law change will do nearly as much good for the economy as most people seem to expect.
