    Description: AbstractThe central contention of this article is that early nineteenth-century Irish landlords were constrained in their ability to control their estates by the prospect of peasant resistance. The apex of that resistance took the form of what are generically known as whiteboy movements, and this article examines the impact of one particular such movement, the Whitefeet, active in the East Midlands and South-East in the early 1830s. The article argues that two forms of landlord versus tenant conflicts can be identified: an absolute form, in which landlords (or sublettingrentierscalled middlemen) behaved as if they had absolute rights over their properties and were the victims of retaliatory violence; and a negotiated form, in which landlords (or their agents) proceeded in a more restrained, and piecemeal fashion, and compromised in the face of opposition. The fact that the magistracy, at least in some instances, condemned the practitioners of absolute conflict would suggest that more measured approaches were the socially accepted norm, precisely because of the potential for retaliatory violence. The article will conclude with a discussion framing the foregoing in terms of moral economy. It will be argued that the balance between landlord power and tenant resistance created a grudging acceptance of respective rights.

    Description: [...]plan sponsors and service providers are painfully aware of the need to have a documented process in place and make prudent decisions when it comes to fees. Plan sponsors need to find thirdparty auditors that have the knowledge to delve deeply into the 16 data security control objectives by asking service providers questions including: * How much cybersecurity insurance do you have? * What is your firm-wide security governance model and does it have board/executive management accountability? * How many times do external and internal penetration tests occur? * What types of firewalls do you have? * What kinds of cybersecurity-related policies do you have? [...]a company might be asked to provide: * Sample sets of policies * Test results from the last disaster recovery test * High level attestations from a third party * The name of the external network penetration test provider * ISO or specific security certifications * System Organization Controls (SOC) report on security practices The ideal would be establishing a standardized set of comprehensive due diligence questionnaires that span all areas of cybersecurity, including tools, processes, test results, vendor management programs, remediation management, incidence response, and all these different pieces. Plan sponsors should review internal processes and work with third-party auditors to evaluate the processes plan providers have in place. Because cyberattacks evolve, so must plan defenses.

    Description: Every year, leaders in the retirement industry discuss trends they believe will shape the future. For the last few years, expectations have focused on repurposing defined contribution (DC) plans to help current and former participants transition from work into retirement. Here, Dunne discusses the potential value of plan provider IRAs as an alternative retirement income solutions and as a means of combating America's retirement savings crisis.

    Description: For years, discussions of the retirement crisis in the US have focused on Americans' savings--or lack of savings. Headline after headline, and survey after survey, have reported that Americans are not setting aside enough money to live comfortably through their retirement. As many in the industry understand, an important aspect of the issue is access to workplace plans. Here, Dunn explores the reasons some small and medium-sized businesses do not offer retirement plans. He then suggests that dispelling myths and educating employers may be the solution to ensuring that those workers have the ability to save for retirement at work.

    Description: Providing retirement savers with information that is significantly more transparent would help them determine the actual costs of participating in both IRAs and 401(k) plans. From 2006 through late 2016, numerous lawsuits were filed accusing defined contribution plan sponsors and plan service providers of charging excessive or hidden fees. Most 401(k) plan sponsors hire service providers to help with administrative, participant-focused, regulatory and compliance services, and investment management, because running a retirement plan is not their core business. The service providers they hire charge fees. Generally, litigation has focused on plan sponsors' ability to determine actual plan and participant costs and prove that their plan costs were reasonable and equitable. In many cases, revenue sharing was the issue. Revenue sharing is the practice of paying for plan services through a plan's investment options by making the cost of services a part of investment expenses. IRAs have long played a vital role in the retirement system by helping plan participants preserve savings accumulated for retirement.

    Description: A rapidly evolving regulatory environment is galvanizing change in the retirement industry, with automatic enrollment acting as a double-edged catalyst. On one side, it may help improve retirement security for millions of Americans who might otherwise never have saved in a workplace retirement plan. On the other, it has exacerbated issues associated with small accounts that are left behind by former employees. During the past few years, the Department of Labor, Internal Revenue Service, and Congress have focused more closely on plan sponsors' and plan service providers' management of small accounts that have been left behind. Greater regulatory scrutiny is changing the way some service providers approach automatic rollover services. Instead of providing the services in-house, they've begun to outsource rollovers to firms that specialize in servicing small balance accounts. Outsourcing strengthens business functions by allowing recordkeepers to focus on core services. Another driver behind outsourcing automatic rollovers was risk management.

    Description: More and more experts contend that we face a retirement crisis in the US. Yet others believe many Americans are reasonably well prepared for retirement. Both groups rely on a variety of statistics and surveys to support their positions. Regardless, the reality is that assessing the retirement readiness of Americans is quite difficult. The workplace retirement system in the US is a decentralized assemblage encompassing 694,000 private-sector plans, comprised primarily of defined-contribution plans. Individual retirement accounts also are a critical component of the system as well, accounting for about one-third of US retirement assets. Challenges associated with assessing our retirement system are compounded by the fact that some US households have multiple retirement accounts. Many small business owners participating in Pew Charitable Trusts focus groups in Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, and Los Angeles agreed that, when it comes to attracting and retaining employees, offering retirement plans was a top priority, although it came second after providing health insurance.
