Restoring the Trust for All Generations — Principles for Saving and Strengthening America’s Health, Retirement, and Economic Security Programs

“One of the great mistakes,” Milton Friedman observed, “is to judge policies and programs by their intention rather than their results.” Restoring the trust among America’s generations requires a new approach and a new way of thinking about how to keep the Nation’s commitments.  Addressing this challenge is an imperative that cannot wait – and every American must be engaged in the discussion. Principles to guide the process include:

Expand Choices
Restore Market Forces
Foster Competition
Provide Flexibility
Promote Innovation
Encourage Self-Sufficiency
Engage the Spirit of Federalism
