  • Social Security as a Human Rightby Eibe H. Riedel

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 209.00

    Article 9 of the International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights on the right to social security is the shortest article in the entire Covenant and for that reason alone highly abstract and vague. A comprehensive analysis of the article 9 is still lacking, not least because it is widely regarded as a Pandora's box better not to be opened.... more...

  • Administrative Aspects of Investment-Based Social Security Reformby John B. Shoven

    University of Chicago Press 2007; US$ 45.00

    Social security reform in the United States continues to be a pressing and contentious issue, with advocates touting some form of a centralized or a privatized system of personal accounts.

Privatizing... more...

    University of Chicago Press 2007; US$ 45.00

    Social security is the largest and perhaps the most popular program run by the federal government. Given the projected increase in both individual life expectancy and sheer number of retirees, however, the current system faces an eventual overload. Alternative proposals have emerged, ranging from reductions in future benefits to a rise in taxrevenue... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 52.95

    Over the past decade, a new awareness of the relationship between conflicts and development has grown.
