Broadly speaking there are four main types of pension trustees, although the categories are by no means definitive as trustee is not traditionally a profession as such, but rather a role to which individuals with other training or life skills from outside pension trusts might be appointed. First, “individual trustees” are, as the title suggests, one of several trustees or a member of a board of pension trustees. Secondly, a “corporate trustee” is a company, or more accurately speaking the director of that company. Often where occupational pension schemes are concerned, the employer itself will be the pension trustee. Thirdly, member-nominated trustees might be directors or members who have experience of financial matters and are appointed to take on the responsibilities of managing the trust fund on behalf of beneficiaries of the scheme.

It may sound too intuitive that the thrust of any individual movement in life is the production of something that ultimately gives that individual some means for sustenance.
Collective effort outcome supposedly produces enough for all and then some. The expansion and contraction of the production movement determines the economic welfare of nations. At least this is how it is supposed to work assuming that there are resources to be energized by movement of masses.
As the society becomes more sophisticated new factors compete for trivialities of distractions. Individual income taxes, corporate income taxes are examples. A massive body of individuals is working for what we call the IRS (other nations have a different name for it.) They are now on the phone talking and threatening, others issuing IRS levy.
Some are carrying the garnishments tray for the unfortunate of the day. But
In their ongoing efforts on catching tax cheats, the IRS has prevented $4.4 billion in bogus tax refunds from being given out this year. This represents an increase of 171% from the previous year, according to the report released by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The TIGTA reported in 2010 that a total of almost 50,000 prisoners claimed more than $130 million in tax refunds, which largely went unscrutinized.
The TIGTA report also states that, “As of April 30, 2011, the IRS reported that it had selected 199,854 tax returns filed by prisoners for screening. T
The Occupy Wall Street phenomenon has proven that large scale demonstrations in the United States are not simply a thing of the past. For mainly a younger segment of the population the movement has given hope that the people can incite change in the way the system works. And for many of the young protesters this concept seems like a novel and new approach to changing the financial situation of the country.
But what can the movement learn form the past? How has previous financial turmoil responded in the face of protesters and action movements? With a historical reference is the Occupy Wall Street movement one in a long line of successful economic protest movements or are the sign holders wasting their time?
