Book Description

Paul Ryan will take about $100,000 from your retirement savings and give it to Wall Street to “manage” your retirement; Wall Street does not work for free. After $100,000 in fees from everyone, can Wall Street pay everyone back? No.

Using non-technical language and a dialogue format, this book explains the problems with social security privatization, misleading privatization arguments and outright lies. Logical fallacies and economic concepts are presented in a Socratic discussion with a cowboy at McDonald’s.

Steve Baba has a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Maryland at College Park and has taught economics in the United States, Europe and Asia.

We all know the country is politically torn, die-hard Paul Ryan supporters might be a bit displeased by this book but it makes many good points none the less. Written in plain English as a conversation between two people this book avoids confusing legal jargon. I found the argument against investing social security in private stocks very compelling, as well as the section on "gaming the system". It is human nature to disregard information we find uncomfortable, but do yourself a favor and at least spend the time to objectively ponder the subject. While I can't say this book has me totally convinced that private social security is an awful idea, it has challenged my views and was an enjoyable and easy read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent August 28, 2012

I'm aware that when it comes to politics, most people believe what they want, regardless of the evidence right in front of their faces. I suggest that people read this for the factual information and apply it to their own life situations, then make an objective determination

1.0 out of 5 stars Did the author even read the plan? August 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If the author actually read Ryan's plan then I seriously question his ability to comprehend basic math or understand the current condition of government social programs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disengenuous, Misleading & Corrupt. August 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The person who attempted to write this would have done well to check facts, and maybe even consider presenting one or two in this writing. Sadly, it's all hear-say from misinformation sources such as the Main Stream Media. The only reason this book merits even one star is because now I know who to turn to if I wish to sell inland ocean front property.

1.0 out of 5 stars unreadable August 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is written in conversation form: the "economist" (who seems to think Government can solve every problem) and the"cowboy" who can't outsmart the economist. Unfortunately, the book is difficult to read at best, is filled with partial sentences and thoughts that don't flow, and ignores the fact that there is no incentive to run a Government program under budget. Fact: As the population grows older and lives longer, the only method of keeping Social Security solvent is to increase taxes, or borrow more from China, which, in the authors view, will never need to be paid back.
