  • 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. In general, centralized systems offer low administrative costs, but are potentially subject to political mismanagement and appropriation. Privatized account systems,... more...

  • Social Security Programs and Retirement around the Worldby David A. Wise

    University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 100.00

    In nearly every industrialized country, large aging populations and increased life expectancy have placed enormous pressure on social security programs—and, until recently, the pressure has been compounded by a trend toward retirement at an earlier age. With a larger fraction of the population receiving benefits, in coming decades social security... more...

  • The Distributional Aspects of Social Security and Social Security Reformby Martin Feldstein; Jeffrey B. Liebman

    University of Chicago Press 2007; US$ 45.00

    Social security is the largest and perhaps the most popular program run by the federal government.

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 45.00

    Our current social security system operates on a pay-as-you-go basis; benefits are paid almost entirely out of current revenues. As the ratio of retirees to taxpayers increases, concern about the high costs of providing benefits in a pay-as-you-go system has led economists to explore other options. One involves "prefunding," in which a person's withholdings... more...

  • Social Security Programs and Retirement around the Worldby Jonathan Gruber; David A. Wise

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 45.00

    The future of Social Security is troubled, both in the United States and in most other developed countries with aging populations. As improvements in health care and changes in life styles enable retirees to live longer than ever before, the stress on national budgets will increase substantially. In Social Security Programs and Retirement around... more...

  • Social Securityby Jagadeesh Gokhale

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 44.00

    Many of us suspect that Social Security faces eventual bankruptcy. But the government projects its future finances using long outdated methods. Employing a more up-to-date approach, Jagadeesh Gokhale here argues that the program faces insolvency far sooner than previously thought. To assess Social Security’s fate more accurately under current... more...
