Summary
  • Social Security, not for nothing do politicians call it the "third rail of American politics-touch it, and you die." Yet a powerful, well-funded movement to phase out Social Security or even privatize it has been gathering strength since the election of Ronald Reagan. Each time it's come close to succeeding, it's been beaten back by a coalition of labor, grassroots organizers, and the elderly-only to come back, stronger and more determined than ever. Meanwhile, Social Security has only become more vital to retirees and their families facing the reduction or elimination of other government benefits
  • The People's Pension is both groundbreaking history and an eye-opening guide for anyone concerned about one of the biggest issues of our time. With 95 percent of Americans participating in the program either as beneficiaries or through their payroll tax contributions, Social Security is quite literally the glue that binds Americans together as a community. In a provocative epilogue, Laursen argues to democratize, not disable, the program, suggesting that the only solution for Social Security may be to de-link it from government altogether Book jacket
