As the ranks of the elderly continue to swell and their social welfare becomes a complex and contentious policy issue, how will the United States balance the conflicting demographic and economic demands of providing for its older citizens-especially in light of the anticipated economic burden of the baby boom generation's impending retirement? These problems place the destiny of Social Security and health care at the epicenter of political discussion and debate, making a balanced perspective on these issues essential-particularly as the lives of millions of future Americans will be affected. The Generational Equity Debate offers social workers, policy analysts, political scientists, and sociologists, as well as general readers concerned about the fate of the elderly, a complete range of viewpoints on this vital subject.

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.
