LMS at AEI

Jeff, Maya, and I will present our Social Security reform plan at noon on Monday, June 19, at the American Enterprise Institute. Here's the lineup:

The three authors of the proposal will present their plan, which will then be discussed by a panel of experts, including Charles P. Blahous, special assistant to the president in charge of Social Security policy at the National Economic Council; Jason Furman, director of economic policy for the Kerry-Edwards 2004 presidential campaign; John C. Rother, director of legislation and public policy for the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP); and Kent Smetters, AEI visiting scholar and an associate professor at the Wharton School. Douglas Holtz-Eakin of the Council on Foreign Relations and former director of the Congressional Budget Office will moderate.

Register for the event and stop by if you are in DC that day. Thanks to Phill Swagel for setting up the panel.

Thanks for the link. I have answered Bruce's comment with one of my own.

I think you should give AEI appropriate credit. The panel will include John Rother of the AARP and Jason Furman, formerly of the Kerry-Edwards campaign. We expect critical comments from all sides.
