AAPSS Co-Sponsors ANNALS Entitlement Reform Launch Event
How effective is America’s social safety net? How should we reform entitlement programs so that they’re more effective and fiscally viable? The AAPSS recently invited experts to contribute to a special issue of The ANNALS focused on answering these questions. The result is a comprehensive, critical look at the nation’s safety-net programs, with an eye toward fundamental reforms.
AEI, the Brookings Institution, and AAPSS co-sponsored an event at AEI on November 21 marking the release of this important ANNALS issue. The event featured a discussion by James Ziliak of the University of Kentucky and Robert A. Moffitt of Johns Hopkins University, the special editors of the volume, on why a critical look at safety-net programs is warranted. It also included presentations on Social Security, Medicare, and the Social Security Disability Insurance programs by contributors to the volume, as well as a panel discussion led by AEI President Robert Doar.
