Visa? No, I'll pay with my sense of how much I'm worth

Nice catch of Allan "Objectivist" Greenspan's idea of how to fix social security over at Sadly, No!.

Apparently, giving people the sense that they might have some wealth, which will make them feel wealthy, is just what the doctor ordered, even if in actuality they have squat.

Greenspan's a smart guy who knows that people pay attention to what he says, so I don't think he used such weaselly language without a damn good reason. And I suspect that reason is that the fix that Bush hasn't quite come out and told us about is going to do bugger all to insure that people in this country don't retire into poverty.
