Faster economic growth will save Social Security

Those with the responsibility of protecting Social Security's solvency arrive at their conclusions by projecting economic growth over 75 years. The "crisis" is based on an assumed 1.8% economic growth rate. If the economy grew at 3% the system would be sound for the foreseeable future and the crisis would disappear.
