Abstract:

In a book remarkably free of technical or social science jargon, Max J. Skidmore demonstrates exactly why Social Security is not in danger of going bankrupt and proposes a series of incremental adjustments that will allow the system to support future generations even better. Social Security and Its Enemies shows that far from being a system on the verge of collapse, Social Security in fact does exactly what it was created to do keep America's aged (and disabled, orphaned, and many of her infirm) out of poverty without prejudice and with universal access.
