Work Bucket

leave a comment »

practical lessons in actuarial scienceOne of the key items on my work bucket list, which holds a fast-dwindling collection of things I wish to accomplish before my work life is over:

Click on the image of this book’s title page, then enlarge that if need be, and you’ll find this second edition to have been published by The Spectator Company in 1905! As in, 39 years older than the Society of Actuaries. As in, the book is some 13 years older than our dear neighbor, who celebrates his 97th birthday next week. As in, if the book had been born in the year it was published, then it would now be 10 years older than the last age given in the mortality table given in the book!

Which if nothing else demonstrates that good word survives its own author’s breath. And does still get itself read. And put to good use. ‘And “Miles” to go before I sleep . . . ’

I’m thinking maybe to apply Dawson’s practical lesson on Makeham’s law and changed rate of interest to cash balance plans, pension equity plans and maybe even those new hybrids being contemplated by proposed legislation. Eh, on second thought, maybe I’ll stay out of trouble and just let the lawyers ago about applying Makeham’s law and changed rates of interest to cash balance plans, pension equity plans and maybe even those new hybrids being contemplated by proposed legislation.

I don’t necessarily have to do something myself to have it crossed off my bucket list. That’s good enough a practical lesson in actuarial science to let me simply add this aging book to the pile for my retirement reading enjoyment.
