George P. Schultz and John B. Shoven to Speak in Free Webinar on Social Security and Health Care Reform

WOBURN, Mass., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former Secretary of State George P. Shultz and John B. Shoven, one of the nation's leading experts on entitlement programs, will be featured in a free Webinar on September 29th, 2008 at 1:00 pm EDT. The two are both economists and co-authors of the new book "Putting Our House In Order: A Citizen's Guide to Social Security and Health Care Reform." They will describe the looming U.S. entitlement crisis and a unique approach to solving it.

The Webinar is co-sponsored by Corporate Research Group and It is accessible by registering here:

As the country faces an unsustainable rise in entitlement costs, it is increasingly clear that reform is needed. The rise in health care costs have been especially burdensome, and many experts hope that health care reform will be a top agenda item for the new U.S. administration in 2009, no matter which candidate -- Sen. Barack Obama or Sen. John McCain -- is elected. Shultz and Shoven believe that their approach can gain support from both parties and that it is possible to both rationally contain out-of-control health care costs and keep social security solvent for future generations to share in its benefits.
