Andrew Samwick, professor of economics and director of the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center at Dartmouth, was the chief economist on the staff of President Bush's Council of Economics Advisers (2003-04). He recently collaborated with two colleagues on a new report outlining a plan for Social Security reform. They call it, simply, the Nonpartisan Social Security Reform Plan.

Samwick's co-authors of the plan are: Jeffrey Liebman, professor of public policy, Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, and special assistant to President Clinton for economic policy (1998-99); and Maya MacGuineas, director, Fiscal Policy Program, New America Foundation, and Social Security advisor to Senator John McCain's 2000 presidential campaign.

In this podcast, Samwick talks about the reasons for the plan, outlines the basic elements of the plan, and explains how the plan will be used.
