mysocialsecurity.org Makes the Case for Privatization

The National Center for Policy Analysis has just launched mysocialsecurity.com. This Web Site presents itself as a calculator that attempts to show the difference in returns that a user would experience from a nationalized Social Security system and a privatized alternative system.

This site could prove to be an effective counter-argument to Vice President Al Gore's Social Security proposal if it is promoted properly.

CTDATA tries to limit the number of political positions it takes on this Web Site. Most of the stories we have run on political issues have been related to economic issues and legal issues that affect the Internet. As a company with a number of relatively young employees, our bias is to favor a partial or full privatization of the U.S. Social Security system.

However, the purpose of this article is simply to point out a potentially effective use of the Web to reach technologically optimistic people.
