In this article, the author discusses the issue on who will be paying for the costs of the pension scheme Personal Accounts Delivery Authority (PADA) in Great Britain. The author asserts that it is difficult to believe that millions were spent on advising the government and building the pension scheme. He argues that the problem with the pension scheme is on the way it will compete with private sector schemes.
