Economist Monica Townson has no patience for those who attack the CPP or try to weaken it by excluding the well off. That's why I loved her book.
It's politically incorrect to defend public pensions, which is why everyone should read Townson.

- Ellen Roseman Toronto Star

Now, from veteran journalist Monica Townson comes the most comprehensive treatment on the assault on pensions I ever hope to read.
You'll find this book useful if you're interested in the history of pensions and the threat Canada's public system faces.

- Gail Vaz-Oxlade Investment Executive
