Retirement Security is Symposium Topic
April 11, 2003 event hosted by the Ohio State Law Journal
December 5, 2002
As the nationís population continues to age, one of the biggest challenges the country faces is providing retirement security for the elderly. At their annual symposium, the Ohio State Law Journal and the Moritz College of Law will explore legal, economic, and social policies for meeting that challenge.
The symposium, "Public Policy for Retirement Security in the 21st Century," will be on April 11, 2003 at the Moritz College of Law, 55 West 12th Avenue at The Ohio State University. A dinner with a keynote address will be on April 10, 2003. Scholars, attorneys, and others are encouraged to attend.
The interdisciplinary conference will feature four panels, each focusing on a different aspect of the issue. Scholars will discuss what other countries are doing to meet similar challenges and will explore options for Social Security and private retirement plans in the United States. They will look at funding of Social Security, including privatization and other reforms; the impact of Social Security upon minorities, women and low-income persons; and the reform of qualified retirement plans.
