America’s Safety Net: Welfare and Social Security - AMAC & The Great Courses

This Great Courses introductory post explains TANF (what we generally call welfare) and Social Security.  The latter is often not well understood by the public.  Jennifer Nicoll Victor of George Mason University explains it is a pay as you go program and an anti-poverty program.  It is not a savings program as many tend to think of it.  This post looks at the structure of Social Security and the basic distribution of benefits among demographics.  Full piece here.
