Government taxing of pensions/retirement accounts.

I've written previously about government take over of pensions and retirement accounts.

Ireland is considering taking a different approach.

The Irish government will tax the holdings in a retirement account at 0.6%. The Irish government wins some points for technique since this is a little less brutish than the government taking over the assets in retirement accounts.

The government, of course, says this is a temporary measure. A government's definition of temporary: forever.
