Reforming Social Security Before the Shortfall

The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the American economy, leading to a loss of revenues to the federal government. Among the many revenue streams that the federal government has is the payroll tax, which is a dedicated revenue source for Social Security and Medicare hospital insurance. Even before the pandemic, these social insurance programs were facing insolvency. The pandemic is certain to worsen the outlook for these programs.

We Don't Have to Put Up With This Escheat

Amidst the coronavirus crisis, there are two storylines - aside from the havoc the virus itself has wrought - that seem to stand out.

Numbers released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that the economy hemorrhaged more than 700,000 jobs in the month of March.

If You Build the Blockchain, Regulators Will Come

The hardest part of drafting any new regulation is establishing a definition. In fact, most of the policy work is in the definition and there are alarmingly few policy considerations after something is defined as a covered entity.

The final rule, with several key changes to the proposed rule, will extend overtime pay protections to over 40 million American workers.
