A Cato Policy forum featuring Daniel Shapiro, West Virginia University, Charles Murray, American Enterprise Institute, Kenneth Tollett, Howard University, and Amitai Etzioni, George Washington University. The ultimate question in the debate over Social Security privatization is a moral and philosophical one. Privatization would not be justifiable if it were economically beneficial but morally suspect.
