Who Can Call Themselves an Actuary?

  • Quoting Humpty-Dumpty, "When I use a word it means just what I choose it to mean," the speaker predicted that the day is passing when the word "actuary" can be used by anybody to mean whatever that person chooses it to mean.
  • Those who apply the word "actuary" to themselves when they are not qualified to do so will find themselves a laughing stock, he said.
