Social security and our future

Given President Bush’s State of the Union address, and a number of reader requests, I am reprising my earlier posts on social security reform.  I don’t pretend to have remembered them all, but here are a few links, some retitled to sound more descriptive:

Why I fear proposed reforms

Will reforming social security yield an equity premium? (the most neglected of the lot, but in my mind one of the most important; read Alex also)

Should we opt for forced savings?

Why the transition scares me

The Argentina example

Should we gradually freeze social security benefits in real terms?

Is such a reform politically feasible?

My Econoblog debate with John Irons, summarizing my views

Addendum: Here is one account of what Bush actually said, I was at a flamenco concert.
