Social Security and the 2001 Reform of the Railroad Retirement Program (PDF)
Center for Retirement Research at Boston College Link to more items from this source
June 12, 2013
"The experience of the reformed Railroad Retirement program has lessons for initiatives that would invest Social Security assets in equities ... The adjustment mechanism should address surpluses as well as shortfalls, and cannot be expected to provide a complete solution to the problem of risk.... While introduced in response to the use of equity investments, the adjustment mechanism would respond to any shock, not just financial shocks. Had such a mechanism always been in place, it would have raised taxes or cut benefits, in response to the demographic shocks that created the program's current long-term funding shortfall."
