I know this is really an ancillary point to your post, but why does it matter whether we are an outlier?

I am not trying to be smart, I am seriously curious as to why it matters. I am also not saying that I can't be convinced, but I honestly don't understand why having a different policy from other similarly situated political entities matters, why we should care, or why we should be influenced to change our policy to conform to somebody else's policy. The same notion comes up with respect to capital punishment (and I am sure other issues) as well, and I have the same question. People throw it around as if it matters, and others seemed to accept it as being important, but I could never figure out why.

You could read my, Sam, and Rosalind Connor's book: Global Issues in Employee Benefits Law. :)

Paul - would you mind a five second overview for the benefit of other commenters? Or perhaps it was you who was being smart. ;) Cheers, Miriam
