Details:

Social Security and its ability to provide for future retirees has become the most hotly contested domestic political issue. President Bush’s proposed reform of the Social Security system, which dates back to the 1930s, elicits passionate responses on both sides of the debate. Join us for a timely and informative presentation on the status of Social Security by Charles Davenport. Find out whether Social Security is really in crisis, merely presents some kind of fiscal problem in the future, or is fiscally and economically sound. Professor Davenport will also address the many “fixes” being proposed right now, with special emphasis on Bush’s private accounts suggestion.

This event is free and open to the public.
