Overview

The authors of this timely book challenge the notion that social insurance in the United States must remain inadequate, unaffordable, or both.

Editorial Reviews

Anrig
Graetz and Mashaw [are] not only meticulous in explaining their vision, but they are mindful of the need to address and persuade a broad public audience...this book ought to be read by policy makers and pundits alike, especially as Social Security and Medicare continue to be political footballs in the current presidential debate.
