On July 24, President Bush’s Social Security reform commission is expected to issue its interim report, setting the stage for one of the most important political debates of recent times: should workers be allowed to privately invest their Social Security funds in individual accounts? At one of the first opportunities to respond to this important development, a distinguished panel of experts, with very different views of Social Security reform, will review the commission’s report and offer their assessments on where we go from here.
