Will America grow up before it grows old? : how the coming social security crisis threatens you, your family, and your country by Peter G Peterson( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Japanese and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this short, powerful book, Peter G. Peterson, one of America's top investment bankers and a leading critic of our entitlement policy, spells out in the clearest possible language, with unmistakable numbers and easy-to-read charts, the disaster that lies ahead if we continue to ignore our low savings rate, our ballooning federal deficit, and our enormous unfunded and unsustainable commitments to retirees. Peterson reveals what politicians are afraid to admit: trillions of dollars of promised Social Security and Medicare benefits for which no funds have been provided. Shattering the myths surrounding this subject with hard facts and eye-opening views of the future, Peterson gives the most comprehensive and candid plan for a gradual, humane, fair, and realistic answer to the greatest challenge of the next century: transforming our political, economic, cultural, and social assumptions to adapt to the realities of the graying of America
Facing up : how to rescue the economy from crushing debt and restore the American dream by Peter G Peterson( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The young, the future, and the promise of increased opportunity for all; without rigorous cost-controlling reforms, health care will continue to be the "Pac-Man" of GNP eating up ever-larger resources as baby boomers age and more people live into their eighties and nineties. The Reaganomic approach to deficit reduction was doomed because of its reliance on curtailing benefits to the poor. The Clinton approach is flawed because of its reliance on soaking the rich
On borrowed time : how the growth in entitlement spending threatens America's future by Peter G Peterson( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 2017 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entitlements represent one of the largest and fastest-growing portions of the federal budget. They are regarded as sacrosanct by lawmakers, yet many people see them as one of the greatest threats to the American Dream. This volume argues that by sacrificing the future in order to pay ever-larger federal benefits through programs such as Social Security, Medicare, and federal pensions, entitlement spending has become a crushing burden to American workers. Peterson and Howe destroy myths surrounding entitlement spending. They show that the bulk of it does not go to the poor. The majority of the elderly are not needy and dependent. Entitlement programs, not defense spending, consume the largest share of the federal budget. In short, we cannot balance the budget without reducing entitlement spending. In a country that demands critical investments--improving public education, alleviating poverty, increasing professional opportunity--growth in entitlement spending is unaffordable. On Borrowed Time is an important and timely book that will be mandatory reading for policymakers, politicians, economists, and a general public concerned with its financial future."--Provided by publisher

Steering clear : how to avoid a debt crisis and secure our economic future by Peter G Peterson( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philanthropist, businessman, and former Secretary of Commerce Peter G. Peterson argues that America must address its long-term debt in order to build a strong economy, today and in the future. If we continue to ignore America's unsustainable fiscal challenges, we are steering our country towards a collision with long-term debt that will diminish economic opportunities for the next generation, weaken our ability to protect vulnerable people, and undermine the competitive strength of our businesses in a vastly more global and technological world. The gross federal debt now exceeds $17 trillion, and it is projected to soar in coming decades, diverting resources from the critical private and public investments we need to make in education, R & D, and infrastructure to secure our economic future and Americans' well-being. Yet Washington is gridlocked, risking a crippled economy for our children and grandchildren. Peterson offers a non-partisan analysis of our dilemma and a robust set of options for solving our long-term debt problem. He looks at the impact of aging baby boomers, growing health care costs, outdated military spending, our flawed tax code, and our divided political system. And he shows how we can improve our fiscal outlook through a mix of pro-growth reforms that would reduce government spending and increase revenue, which could be phased in gradually in the years to come once our economy has recovered"--
