Unfortunately, finance textbooks have been saying that that's the equity premium over the risk-free rate of return for at least 20 years. I can see how people might get confused. Two problems; I don't think there has been statistically meaningful validation of the equity premium:), and at some point market timing comes into play, when the pension has to start paying out.
