Which age? Josh Marshall
and Matthew Yglesias
are puzzled by Joe Klein's claim (most recently on Meet the Press) that private accounts are just the thing for the new 'age' we're in. Klein doesn't present a case, so everybody is wondering what the logic is. There is none. The 'age' game can be played now. It could have be played in the past.
Bob Somerby's characterization of "millionaire pundits" is especially apropos on this issue.
Will Joe Klein have to rely on Social Security for his retirement?
