What makes [Alstott’s] book so important is that it addresses the reality that Americans in the aggregate are living longer, healthier lives than in the past… Alstott’s proposal is a clever way of redirecting Social Security benefits toward the disadvantaged without explicitly using means-testing to accomplish that goal… Alstott’s rich sets of proposals are part of an important, emerging conversation on the need to adjust America’s social safety net for the modern labor market, the modern family, and a modern aging population.—Chris Farrell, Next Avenue

An innovative and well-thought-out approach to the challenge of creating an affordable and sensible Social Security system for the foreseeable future.—Daniel Halperin, Harvard Law School

This book reinforces Alstott’s stellar reputation in the legal academy and makes a significant contribution to one of the most important public policy debates of our era. Essential reading.—Rob Reich, Stanford University
