The Social Security is not a Ponzi Scheme - Social Security is not the Ponzi scheme some oppositions may advocate.

It provided an alternative both to reliance on welfare, and to radical changes within the capitalist system. It can be seen as a moderately conservative, yet activist, response to the challenges of the Depression (SSA, 2014)....   [tags: social security act,ponzi scheme,social insurance]
