The Nelson-Siegel-[Svensson] Model is a common approach to fit a yield curve.

Rentenplünderei – der Kluge soll aus den Fehlern der anderen lernen

In Russland wird aktuell das Rentenalter von 60 auf 65 für die Männer und von 55 auf 63 für die Frauen erhöht. Die von Staat kontrollierten Lügenmedia und zahlreiche käufliche "Experten" behaupten, anders kann es nicht gehen, da die Bevölkerung älter wird. Hat es was mit Deutschland zu tun?
