Senior Fellow Eugene Steuerle comments on Social Security privatization options, noting that none say much of anything about the current private pension system, its advantages and limitations, nor about the ways that new, mandated, private accounts would be integrated with private accounts already existing. If proposals for privatization of social security move to a more mature second stage, then reform of the private retirement system should be considered at the same time -- Steuerle suggests one such option.
