AFF – Dallas Discussed Social Security Reform
Around 35 young professionals attended the Dallas Chapter of America’s Future Foundation’s event, How to Fix Social Security on April 11. Dr. W. Michael Cox, Director of the O’Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom at Southern Methodist University and former Chief Economist of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, showed attendees how privatizing social security could fix America’s broken system. Dr. Cox explained how Chile had privatized their retirement system, which resulted in huge gains for worker’s retirement income. The 20-minute talk was followed by a lively Q&A session. Dr. Cox offered suggestions to young professionals, and urged them to write their representatives and ask them to reform America’s Social Security system. This event was sponsored by The Atlas Network and free copies of After the Welfare State (published by The Atlas Network and Students for Liberty) were distributed.
