Aggregate Economic Effects of Changes in Social Security Taxes

Aggregate Economic Effects of Changes in Social Security Taxes


View Issue

Description:
Aggregate Economic Effects of Changes in Social Security Taxes discusses the general economic consequences of the 1977 Social Security Amendments that raised payroll taxes considerably. In contrast to most social security actions, this particular act increased payroll taxes without also increasing benefit payments. The paper reviews some previous studies on effects of social security taxes and then focuses directly on the consequences of the 1977 Amendments.

Paying for Social Security: Funding Options for the Near Term

Paying for Social Security: Funding Options for the Near Term


View Issue

Description:
Undertaken at the request of the Senate Budget Committee, this study focuses on short-run financing issues only. Since the paper concentrates primarily on the trust fund situation, it does not give estimates of all possible budgetary effects that could result from implementing any of the various options. Similarly, farther-reaching issues affecting Social Security's prospects 30 or 40 years hence present different analytical problems and must be considered in another forum.

Recovery: How Fast and How Far?

Recovery: How Fast and How Far?


View Issue

Description:
This report, produced by the Congressional Budget Office, was written in 1975 when key economic indicators were signaling that the U.S. was recovering from its longest and worst recession since the 1930s. The report discusses forecasts for increasing production, but continued high unemployment, and likely renewed inflation due to rising prices. The CBO presents alternative public policy actions, including recommendations for the Federal Reserve System, that were estimated to have significant effects on the rate of recovery during the following couple of years.
