Description: This panel discussion is from the 1991 Meeting of the Society of Actuaries, held May 16-17 in New York.

The panelists provide insights on lending actuarial expertise to policymaking debates. Discussion from participants is included. From the Record of Society of Actuaries, Volume 17, No. 2.Hide
