With the aging of the U.S. population, there is much speculation about the future of the Social Security and Medicare programs. Will they be able to provide for the increasing number of elderly people? And, if they can, will their cost endanger the federal budget and the economy? Vocal segments of society are calling for radical reform of these programs. In False Alarm, Joseph White makes the case against radical reform, advocating instead for incremental change.
