Professor Kotlikoff publishes extensively in newspapers, and magazines on issues of deficits, generational accounting, the tax structure, social security, Medicare, health reform, pensions, saving, insurance, and personal finance.

His most recent book, co-authored with Scott Burns, is entitled The Coming Generational Storm (MIT Press, April 1, 2005). In 2030 there will be twice as many retirees as there are today but only 18 percent more workers. According to Laurence Kotlikoff and Scott Burns, if our government continues on the course it has set, we'll see skyrocketing tax rates, drastically lower retirement and health benefits, high inflation, a rapidly depreciating dollar, unemployment, and political instability. Dr. Kotlikoff proposes bold new policies, including meaningful reforms of Social Security and Medicare, which are simple, straightforward, and geared to attract support from both political parties.
