  1. pension

    A subsidy is pecuniary aid directly granted by government to an individual or commercial enterprise, or money furnished by one nation to another to aid it in carrying on war against a common enemy. A nation grants a subsidy to an ally, pays a tribute to a conqueror. An indemnity is in the nature of things limited and temporary, while a tribute might be exacted indefinitely. A nation may also grant a subsidy to its own citizens as a means of promoting the public welfare; as, a subsidy to a steamship company. The somewhat rare term subvention is especially applied to a grant of governmental aid to a literary or artistic enterprise. Governmental aid to a commercial or industrial enterprise other than a transportation company is more frequently called a bounty than a subsidy; as, the sugar bounty. The word bounty may be applied to almost any regular or stipulated allowance by a government to a citizen or citizens; as, a bounty for enlisting in the army; a bounty for killing wolves. A bounty is offered for something to be done; a pension is granted for something that has been done.

  1. Letsitsa Vincent Mofokeng:

    I left my good paying job and my comfort zone with a dollar in my wallet, nothing in my bank account, bad pension and a good direction of where am going. I will get there

  2. Peter Lee:

    Going forward, rapid growth rates are behind us. Second, interest rates are generally low which has huge meaning for institutional investors such as pension funds, for pension funds, everything is about yield. If you don't get yield you are doomed and that's making some pension funds activists. Their liabilities are huge but yields are low and one way to bridge the gap is to push companies to pay more dividends.

  3. TR Nunley:

    I want you to look at me…..I was born in this life and I will die in this life…..where I go after this life is my own concern. But while I am on this earth….I am not above you or below you…I am your equal and I should be treated like your equal. I should have the right to marry if you have that right. I should have the right to leave my spouse a pension if you may leave your spouse a pension. My dignity is at stake and I need you to look at me and care about my well being, on earth.

  4. Elzear Blaze, La Vie Militaire:

    In the career of glory one gains many things; the gout and medals, a pension and rheumatism....And also frozen feet, an arm or leg the less, a bullet lodged between two bones which the surgeon cannot extract....all of these fatigues experienced in your youth, you pay for when you grow old. Because one has suffered in years gone by, it is necessary to suffer more, which does not seem exactly fair.

  5. Bill Brandt:

    Pension costs have been going up and up, so pension contributions have been going up and up, and property taxes are the single largest source of revenue to pay for them.
