Prospects for Social Security Reform

Olivia S. Mitchell, RobertJ. Myers, and Howard Young, Editors
Global aging exerts enormous pressure on underfunded social security systems. This book critically evaluates proposals to reform social security, including privatization, means-testing, and raising retirement ages. Tax and benefit changes are also explored in detail. Economists, actuaries, gerontologists, and academics join in a search for viable solutions, drawing lessons from the US and other countries.
