Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you want to put the current struggle over Social Security’s future in context, read this book."—Mark Miller, RetirementRevised.com

"Independent financial reporter Laursen offers a breathtakingly comprehensive look at the history and politics behind ‘the largest income support program in the U.S.,’ ... Comprehensive and compelling reading on an important topic."—Booklist, starred review

"Eric Laursen has written a comprehensive and exhaustive history of the Social Security program in the United States. The People’s Pension is an honest, detailed and even eye-opening discussion of the program’s origins and continuing efforts to provide elderly and disabled Americans with a livable income. Equally important, it is a discussion of the attempts to alter and ultimately destroy the program by forces whose only interest seems to be profit and the elimination of any government institution that guarantees every citizen worker an income in their old age." — Ron Jacobs, CounterPunch
