18) The Annual Distinguished Lecture: Anne Alstott - A NEW DEAL FOR OLD AGE
(top)
When: Thursday, November 17, 2016 from 12:45 PM to 2:00 PM
Where: Barristers Hall
What: The rising tide of inequality has undermined one of the United States’ proudest social achievements: the Social Security retirement system. Unprecedented changes in longevity, marriage, and the workplace have made the experience of old age increasingly unequal. Wealthy, educated Americans live longer, healthier lives, well into their 80s and 90s, with more social and job options than ever before. Poorer, less-educated workers, by contrast, face illness, disability, and limited job opportunities, often by their late 50s and early 60s. America’s retirement system is badly out of step with the new inequality of old age. Enacted in the 1930s, Social Security built on the social and economic conventions of its time: it aimed to protect families with a male breadwinner, a steady job, and a marriage that lasted a lifetime. In its time, the program promised a dignified old age for rich and poor alike, but today that egalitarian promise is failing. It is past time to begin reshaping Social Security for the way we live now.
