Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The papers making up this book were given at a 1986 conference celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Social Security system. Chapters on the earlier history are followed by an evaluation of how economists have viewed social security, and by an analysis of the influence of administrative problems. W. Andrew Achenbaum makes some bold proposals for fundamental changes in social policy. Wilbur J. Cohen, a ``founding father,'' gives his vision of social security ten years from now; and Robert J. Myers, another ``insider,'' counters by predicting no essential change. These contributions should be of interest to those concerned with American social policy. Recommended for research collections. Harry Frumerman, formerly with Economics Dept., Hunter Coll., CUNY
