Or to translate:

What would you do with the folks who invested their personal SS accounts in Enron stock? Who were really lousy investors and lost their retirement money?


Limited offerings to just a few index funds of domestic/international stocks and bonds. Added value/risk comes from allocation strategies, with maybe a required minimum by a certain age (i.e., 25% minimum in bonds by age 60). The Enrons aren't a problem because they aren't a large percentage, limited to what is in the index.
