Social Security and the Golden Age: An Essay on the New American Demographic (Speaker's Corner)by George S. Mcgovern
Synopses & Reviews
For more than 50 years Americans went to work each day comforted by knowing that at the time of their retirement, a monetary safety net in the form of Social Security would be there to help them. In the early part of the 21st century, this system has come under attack, both by alarmists fearing that the aging demographic of America will bankrupt the system as the baby boomers age and from those seeking to turn the tide back to the 1920s on what they feel is unjustified social welfare. In this timely work, former senator George McGovern, one of our greatest living political thinkers, points out that Social Security is not currently facing a crisis. Instead, McGovern shows that when properly secured, aging Americans, who are often seen as the source of any alleged Social Security crisis, are actually one of our country's greatest assets. A work of insight that will resonate both with Americans of any age, McGovern's book forces us to look at the wonderful benefits of our new demographic
An American legend looks at Social Security and the promise of our oldest citizens.
