A New Deal for Social Security
This Cato Book Forum video features authors Michael Tanner, and Peter J. Ferrara; with comments by Sen. Rod Grams (R‑Minn.); Sam Beard, Economic Security 2000; C. Eugene Steuerle, Urban Institute; and Wendell Primus, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. A New Deal for Social Security, recently published by Cato, provides a wealth of information about our social security system, beginning with its origin and history, and examines its impact and that of a privatized alternative on workers in general and on the poor, women, minorities and families in particular. Ferrara and Tanner argue for a “practical and workable” privatization plan for the United States and discuss the many policy questions involved.
