While much attention has been focused recently on the well-being of Social Security, the revolution in the private pension system in the United States during the past three decades has remained relatively under the radar. Beginning in the 1980s, many employers in the United States switched the type of pension plans they offer their workers from defined benefit (DB) plans to defined contribution (DC) plans. This freed them from having to set aside funds to pay guaranteed lifetime benefits to retirees. It also shifted the investment risk to workers, making them responsible for contributing to and managing their retirement funds through 401(k) accounts. Edward N. Wolff calls this the Great Transformation, and for good reason. From 1983 to 2007, the share of families with DC plans rose from 12 percent to 64 percent, while the share with DB plans fell from 69 percent to 39 percent. This change has not only thoroughly altered how millions of Americans fund their retirement, it has also, as Wolff shows, generated growing income inequality and insecurity among retirees while escalating the importance of Social Security as a source of retirement income. Increasingly, when it comes to retirement wealth, those with DB plans are the haves while those with DC plans are the have-nots, particularly in times characterized by economic recession or stagnation. Wolff seeks to address six basic questions: 1. With the Great Transformation, did pension coverage expand or contract over time? 2. Did the value of pension wealth increase or decline? 3. Did overall wealth inequality rise or fall? 4. Did the retirement prospects of middle-aged Americans improve or worsen? 5. How did the Great Transformation affect different demographic groups? 6. How did these effects vary between the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s? Through exhaustive analysis, Wolff identifies the weaknesses in the current private pension system and offers practical, policy-based solutions aimed at strengthening the system, thereby making retirement a less daunting prospect for workers relying on 401(k) plans as a key source of retirement income and wealth. He also recognizes the importance of Social Security to these workers and suggests ways of strengthening it as well.

The New Deal placed security at the center of American political and economic life by establishing an explicit partnership between the state, economy, and citizens. In America, unlike anywhere else in the world, most people depend overwhelmingly on private health insurance and employee benefits. The astounding rise of this phenomenon from before World War II, however, has been largely overlooked. In this powerful history of the American reliance on employment-based benefits, Jennifer Klein examines the interwoven politics of social provision and labor relations from the 1910s to the 1960s. Through a narrative that connects the commercial life insurance industry, the politics of Social Security, organized labor's quest for economic security, and the evolution of modern health insurance, she shows how the firm-centered welfare system emerged. Moreover, the imperatives of industrial relations, Klein argues, shaped public and private social security. Looking closely at unions and communities, Klein uncovers the wide range of alternative, community-based health plans that had begun to germinate in the 1930s and 1940s but that eventually succumbed to commercial health insurance and pensions. She also illuminates the contests to define "security"--job security, health security, and old age security--following World War II. For All These Rights traces the fate of the New Deal emphasis on social entitlement as the private sector competed with and emulated Roosevelt's Social Security program. Through the story of struggles over health security and old age security, social rights and the welfare state, it traces the fate of New Deal liberalism--as a set of ideas about the state, security, and labor rights--in the 1950s, the 1960s, and beyond.
