Here's a new one from the folks at CEPR:

Social Security Reporting Review by CEPR, January 18, 2005: This is the first installment of the Social Security Reporting Review (SSRR) which will appear every Monday.  This review will function similar to ERR, but it will only chronicle stories concerning Social Security. You can sign up to receive SSRR  and other CEPR e-newsletters at the CEPR Listserve Signup Page..

This is useful and where Dean Baker is probably the strongest. He and Mark Weisbrot were way out in front on this issue.

Some of his other writings on trade, current account deficit, and housing prices are not as good...but this report is useful in tracking what is being said.

You forgot to say exactly why it is you should sign up.

Right. He's the guy who's done the most to get the point out there that there's a grave inconsistency between the privatizer's claim of 7% real returns on domestic equities and the GDP growth rate assumed in the Social Security Trustee's projections. (Here at Brad's Semi-Daily Journal, commenter Bruce Webb has done a bang up job raising this issue.)

You don't need to sign up; just go to cepr.net. (Their Economic Reporting Review is a good read.)

That CEPR newsletter would work a lot better with live links. I had read most of the content summarized there, but some way to get to the rest would have been great.

Live links. Hmm, an idea whose time as come. And not just at CEPR.
