Peter A. Diamond and Peter R. Orszag, two of the nations foremost economists, propose a reform plan that would rescue the program both from its projected financial problems and from those who would destroy the program in order to save it.Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 2004, the Social Security debate has moved to the center of the domestic policy agenda. In this updated edition of Saving Social Security, the authors analyze the Bush Administrations proposal for individual accounts and discuss the so-called price indexing proposal to restore long-term solvency through changing how initial benefits would be calculated.Saving Social Security is essential reading for policymakers involved in reform, analysts, students, and all those interested in the fate of this safeguard of American lives.
