what government run program has worked?
If you look at it in terms of administrative costs versus payout, social security is far more efficient than private pension insurance. Of course there's less payout than the subjunctive investments we all know about: 'If I'd just borrowed 50 grand and put it on Clay in the first Clay-Liston fight,' or 'I should've bought that house when it was selling for 20 grand...' or 'Why didn't I dump that Enron stock when I had the chance?' Except those big payoffs are made with subjunctive money...
