Since the election of 2004, one burning question has dominated any discussion of the long-term macroeconomic policy of this country. That question is: "will social security remain viable in its current form?" Economists weigh in on a spectrum that ranges from the opinion that social security is not in any trouble to the opinion that social security payments are in immediate peril. This research indicates that, while relatively minor changes of the type the country has undertaken for the last two decades may be necessary, social security is by no means in what any intelligent analyst would consider peril.
