EVEN OUR SOCIALISTS ARE CONSERVATIVES:

The policy proposals Thomas Piketty forgot to mention (Tyler Cowen, April 22, 2014, Marginal Revolution)

[T]here are more straightforward remedies.  Social Security privatization is another option, if r > g is truly such a likelihood.  Yet Piketty and his boosters won't mention this.  By the way, I am opposed to social security privatization -- scroll down in that link -- but I probably would favor it if it my views were closer to Piketty's.

We no longer have policy differences, only arguments over the pace of achieving the consensus position.
