Social Security Dialogue Should Be Wide-Ranging

February 10, 2005

Abstract

[USA Today] Before the political momentum for Social Security reform dissipates into a single-minded dispute over how much to trust Americans' retirement wealth to the stock market, or the president goes on the road again to stump for personal accounts, larger questions need attention. Only then will the debate track Social Security's original purpose--meeting the basic economic needs of those considered old by the life expectancy and health standards of each generation.
