ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: xiii, pages: graphs ; 21 cm: Contents: Background and history: the crisis in public finance and social security / E. Cowan --Social security / M. Feldstein --Payroll taxes, no; general revenues, yes / M. Friedman --The social security system / J.A. Pechman --The role of social security in income.

The misframed debate about whether there is a social security cash flow crisis in or also turns on whether those "bonds" have any economic or intrinsic value.
