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:
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?
Should we gradually freeze social security benefits in real terms?
Is such a reform politically feasible?

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