Social Insurance: America’s Neglected Heritage and Contested Future

A book talk with authors:

Ted Marmor, Professor Emeritus, Yale School of Management, Yale Law School, and Department of Political Science

Jerry Marshaw, Yale Law School

John Pakutka, Managing Director, The Crescent Group, an advisory services firm with expertise in healthcare management, policy, and litigation

And with discussant Stephen Latham, Yale Center for Bioethics

Join Marmor, Mashaw, and Pakutka as they discuss their new book on the history, politics, and philosophy of American social insurance programs. What has the country done to protect its citizens from life-changing but common risks such as death of a family breadwinner, ill health, or being born into a poor family? How do our current policies affect taxation, spending, and the economy, as well as prospects for individual lives? Hear the authors’ perspectives, join in the conversation, and mingle over wine and cheese.
