Privatizing Social Security

This battle will be one of the big ones this year. Paul Krugman suggests that the problem isn't as bad as some have pointed out and he offers solutions on how to fix it. So take the time to check out his articles over the next few days and get another viewpoint. If you are not inclined to check back on him over the next few days, his arguments can be read in full in the Economist's Voice . Krugman, besides being an Op-ED writer for the NY Times, is also Professor Economics at Princeton, so he is not just another writer babbling about something they know nothing about.

Arianna has a good list of things she would like to forget in 2004. Would have to agree with most of them.
