Some questions ask for the writer's opinion, and that is reflected consistently in the message that we need less government, not more. The paper recommends that the salvation of Social Security could be that Congress is prevented from skimming off surpluses that should remain in the fund, while simultaneously implementing a different system based on the example of Singapore's Provident Fund in which individuals are required to contribute to accounts that they have responsibility for managing.

Trends in Public Housing in Virginia
A 9 page paper discussing trends in public housing and their effects on urban problems. With the ongoing reductions in funds available through federal and state governments for use in providing low-income housing, cities increasingly are finding it necessary to turn to the private sector and nonprofit groups to aid in providing affordable housing. In the case of Richmond, the city was able to use public housing funds to upgrade decaying urban infrastructure while turning to private sources to provide actual housing in the area the city upgraded with the funds. The new creativity results in more units being made available for habitation while also contributing to a wider sense of community not possessed by those still adhering to the standard method of requiring full public funding. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
