Out of country… September 6, 2009

Request: Please indulge a week-long parallel purpose for this blog. This week I am in Kazakhstan with Tim as he presents on the design and risk management of pension plans as part of an international actuarial seminar hosted by the Actuarial Society of Kazakhstan.

It is my intent to share cultural observations, some pictures, and, in keeping with the original focus of this blog, include curricular connections to our trip. I hope you enjoy the information.

If you teach courses that address banking, investing, and/or finance, the Actuarial Foundation offers free content in the form of e-books which are able to be downloaded from their Organization’s education site. (They have additional curriculum also.) This summer they also offered a free copy of the materials in print to the first 1000 teachers who emailed them. (In August I did send the email on behalf of our business teacher and still received the curriculum so if you are interested, it is worth sending the inquiry).
