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.
