New publication: “Is There A Retirement Crisis?”

I have a long article co-authored with Syl Schieber in the summer issue of National Affairs which looks at the variety of factoids and studies suggesting that Americans are facing a “retirement crisis.” While many Americans no doubt are undersaving for retirement, nearly every study claiming a crisis makes a number of at least debatable methodological choices. We examine many of these choices and give, I believe, a more rounded view of the issue.

This piece should be of interest to anyone interested in retirement security, including Social Security reform. You can read it online here.
