Format: Hardcover
The society security program is facing fiscal pressures which threaten future retirement benefits for young workers: just four years from now, the first member of baby boomers will become eligible to receive benefits and the number of beneficiaries will rapidly escalate over the next ten years. Michael Tanner provides a scholarly analysis of Social Security's reforms and special challenges, including international the key thinkers of social reforms and the system to provide concrete proposals for reform. It's refreshing to see an in-depth volume which not only poses the usual warnings, but then goes on to offer concrete solutions: Social Security And Its Discontents should not be overlooked.
