Book launch celebration & reading for Eric Laursen’s new THE PEOPLE’S PENSION

The People’s Pension is both a groundbreaking history and an indispensable guide for anyone concerned about one of the biggest issues in the upcoming election. Social Security is quite literally the “glue” that binds Americans together as a community, yet in the aftermath of the debt reduction deal between Barack Obama and congressional Republicans, the 2012 election promises to be a kind of referendum on the size and role of government– including economic support programs like Social Security. Arguing to democratize, not disable, the program, Eric Laursen suggests that the only solution for Social Security is taking it out of the government’s hands altogether. Laursen is the co-author of “Understanding the Crash.”
