More Social Security

Check this essay by Arnold Kling. He wonders how you would convince a young worker to either voluntarily contribute to social security or to vote to coerce all workers to participate. Jefferson might like this essay as well.

I think this is perhaps one of the most effective arguments that can be used to dissuade young workers favoring social security. A reduction in future earnings of 1/3 is shocking. However, what is even more astonishing are those Leftist politicians that contend the government will somehow put 1/3 of my income to use more effectively than I could do myself. It has long been understood that if you want something done efficiently the government is the last place to turn.
