Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., MS Biography

Title:
Member of the Editorial Board at the Wall Street Journal
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Social Security Be Privatized?"
Reasoning:

“[T]hose who think the recent halving of America’s 401(k)s proves the unwisdom of such [private savings] reforms should think again. Today’s workers should be so lucky to get a realistic picture of what Social Security and Medicare might pay when they retire. In contrast, their mutual-fund statements are a model of transparent honesty about current expectations of future earnings of American business.”
