Professor Kathryn Moore, Everett H. Metcalf, Jr. Professor of Law at the University of Kentucky, has recently published "Social Security Reform in 2005 and Beyond," in the NYU Review of Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation 2006, at 8-1 to -31. The article begins by analyzing three of the most politically salient proposals for reform made in 2005. It then explains why Social Security reform failed in 2005 despite the administration's efforts to amend the system to include private accounts. The article concludes with a discussion of the future prospects for reform.
