"Laursen has given us a comprehensive account of the three decade long war against Social Security. . . . This is a fascinating history that progressives must learn, not only to protect Social Security but also to understand the dynamics behind an effective long-term strategy."--Dean Baker, author of "False Profits: Recovering From the Bubble Economy"
"This magnificent history documents the hydra-headed campaign to cut and kill Social Security, conducted over decades by rightwing bankers, foundations, economists, and politicians. "The People's Pension"] is utterly urgent."--James K. Galbraith, author of "The Predator State"
"The People's Pension" is both groundbreaking history and an indispensable guide for anyone concerned about one of the biggest issues in the upcoming election. With 95 percent of Americans participating in the program either as beneficiaries or through their payroll tax contributions, Social Security is quite literally the "glue" that binds Americans together as a community. Yet in the aftermath of the debt reduction deal between Barack Obama and congressional Republicans, the 2012 election promises to be a kind of referendum on the size and role of government--including economic support programs like Social Security. Arguing to democratize, not disable, the program, Eric Laursen suggests that the only solution for Social Security is taking it out of the government's hands altogether.
Eric Laursen is an independent financial and political journalist, activist, and commentator. The co-founder and former managing editor of "Plan Sponso"r, a magazine for pension fund executives, Laursen is also the co-author of "Understanding the Crash" (2010). His work has appeared in a wide variety of publications, including The Huffington Post, "The Nation," "Institutional Investor," "The Village Voice," and "Investment Dealer's Digest."
