So you prefer assumptions made about people's incomes based on where they live rather than individuals have to show evidence of their earnings to qualify for a discount. I find this kind of thinking at odds with what actuaries do generally, even those at CAS. The direction of travel tends to be less use of crude methods.

It's also worth pointing out, for our overseas friends, that sitting UK actuarial exams without a job is incredibly rare. I don't know what the US rules are, but to get your UK fellowship you need a minimum of 3 years relevant work experience, the UK exams aren't cheap, neither is membership of the profession. So it's more a case of UK employers subsidising overseas employers, rather than individual actuaries.

Doesn't change the position v the EU rules, but the moral argument for the old stance being discriminatory is, in the real world, pretty weak.

Hey folks! This thread is fascinating, and I've read most of it in the last hour or so. There have been many reports from this thread that we mods are wading through. It's just become too much. I think it could use a cooling off period, so I'm locking the thread for now.
Don't meddle with dragons if you are crunchy and good with ketchup.
