M_Harrington Meyer "A Targeted Minimum Benefit Plan: A New Proposal to Reduce Poverty Among Older Social Security Recipients A Targeted Minimum Benefit Plan," co-authored by Madonna Harrington Meyer, was published in the Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences. The authors propose an effective and relatively inexpensive targeted program to provide a minimally adequate floor to old-­age income through the Social Security system. This minimum benefit plan would provide a cost-­effective method for reducing elder poverty to very low levels. 03/09/18
