Globalization and dramatic changes in technology have transformed the nature of work in the United States. The Report to the New Leadership and the American People on Social Insurance and Inequality makes the case for strengthening and modernizing Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and unemployment insurance to keep up with the needs of a changing nation. The Report was published by the National Academy of Social Insurance.
