In an April 2016 op-ed for Institutional Investor, SkyBridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci warned that the U.S. was in the midst of “a retirement crisis” and argued for a drastic overhaul of the pension system, modeled on Australia’s superannuation funds. “The question is whether in this toxic political environment our elected officials will do anything about the problem,” Scaramucci opined. Now, as an adviser to President Donald Trump, the Mooch, 53, is in a position to get some answers. In his II op-ed he laid out an ambitious policy agenda that includes raising the retirement age for Social Security from 66 to 70 and reducing benefits for wealthier individuals. He also called for employers to set up retirement programs in exchange for union concessions on defined contribution pension liabilities. To make America great again, Scaramucci wants to make it Australia. — Jess Delaney
