Hand Up In Front!
Q. So if you indexed Social Security benefits to inflation
rather than to wage growth, wouldn't that mean that the income drop-off from work to retirement becomes steeper and steeper over time?
Why isn't that a problem again?
(Er... devoted readers will recall that I've advocated something similar
in the past. Even provided some historical context. Yes, true. But the rule is: once all the cool kids get on board, the contrarian pen flashes from its scabbard, and I'm obliged to ask naive-sounding questions.)
