This book should be required reading for Generation X'ers who worry that Social Security won't 'be there' when they retire--and for politicians and financiers who worry that we can't afford an aging society. It gives both sides of the argument in a factual, rational presentation for policymakers engaged in restructuring Social Security for the 21st century.
