Appeared in Choice on 1989-07:
The US Social Security system provides many people, policymakers and general public alike, with hours of discussion topics. Future predictions cite impending doom or unlimited bliss. Economists Aaron, Bosworth, and Burtless are well qualified to provide the analysis of public policy issues. Their study examines the projected adequacy of Social Security revenues. They conclude the Congress must make some hard and perhaps unpopular decisions if the fund is to support future benefits. They recommend solutions that will supply the necessary revenues to provide a benefit level they believe adequate. Though the book contains solid economic analysis, it is not intended to discuss the political difficulties attendant to Social Security changes. A book that deserves to be studied seriously by most of the population. Academic and public library collections. -W. C. Bonifield, Lilly Endowment
