    You should calm down on the derp talk; your head couldn't be further up your ass.

    Take what you pay in SS and put it into an annuity and tell me the difference on the payout.

    Social Security: The Best Annuity Money Can Buy

    With an implied payout rate of 9.5%, Social Security delay provides a higher payout rate, stronger inflation protection and less credit risk than commercially available annuities.

    Next bit. Note the part at the end I talked about above. "less credit risk". Almost as if that is an important part of determining return.

    Social Security: The Best Annuity You Can Buy
    https://seekingalpha.com/article/426...nnuity-can-buy
    Summary
    Delaying the start of Social Security past age 62 means the foregone income is reinvested in the system.

    The increased income later can be interpreted as a lifetime annuity over and above what was available at age 62.

    The annuity return on the reinvested income is 7-9% in the first year, depending on age, and growing with inflation thereafter.

    This is very favorable compared to other annuity options.

    Pick an annuity to measure it against. SS is itself an annuity, and backed by the full faith and credit of the US government.
    No. Annuities have steady monthly payments and guaranteed payouts. SS is a shit man's annuity even if you want to make that argument.

    You didn't really read any of the analysis I posted, and obviously don't understand the financial concepts. Your statement here pretty much confirms that, since you completely ignored d the fact of fund/company/default risk, as if you don't even know about it.

    Sokay. I kinda knew that already.

    "Now, the Libertarian Party, is a capitalist party. It's in favor of what I would regard a particular form of authoritarian control. Namely, the kind that comes through private ownership and control, which is an extremely rigid system of domination - people have to... people can survive, by renting themselves to it, and basically in no other way... I do disagree with them very sharply, and I think that they are not..understanding the fundamental doctrine, that you should be free from domination and control, including the control of the manager and the owner."

    That's exactly what the oligarchy's s the Repugs have been doing

    they MISgovern, up government, piss people off, tell people "govt IS the problem" and Repugs do everything to MISgovern.

    Why? To corrupt and enfeeble govt so the oligarchy can rape and pillage the people and the environment unencumbered by "the administrative state"

    Spurty: "hold my beer"

    In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people mistakenly assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is. It is related to the cognitive bias of illusory superiority and comes from the inability of people to recognize their lack of ability.
    Sure man. If you say so. I'm not even going to argue with you at this point. Watching you flail is more fun. Keep talking.

    Hold my beer.

    Only an idiot believes a compulsory system like SS is giving a better return than a solid annuity. Of course, you fit the bill.

    I'll take my beer back now.

    Sure. You are 100% right. No doubt about it. Keep talking and share the knowledge.

    Annuities vs Social Security

    My right-brained, accountant husband stayed home yesterday because it snowed. We started talking about the number of people who attack Social Security as an inefficient retirement fund and insist they could do much better on their own.

    Just for the heck of it — because he loves math and me — my hubby unearthed his most recent annual Social Security statement and plugged the numbers into a spreadsheet to test how his accumulated Social Security compares to a conservative investment of the same amount of money outside Social Security. He was surprised to learn that Social Security isn’t such a bad deal after all.

    Hubby listed his taxable wages beginning in 1963 on the spreadsheet. In the second column, he put the annual percentage of Social Security deducted from his wages — it’s changed over time, from 3.32 percent the first year he paid in to 6.2 percent last year. He calculated his annual contributions and his employers’ annual contributions based on his wages. Then he totaled the contributions.

    Next, he assumed that Uncle Sam would invest the money in 30-year Treasuries, and he plugged in interest on the accumulated money based on the Treasury rates, calculating a purchase every six months and reflecting the actual change in rates. Finally, he added up the annual totals and a grand total.

    He took that grand total and plugged it into ImmediateAnnuties.com and got a monthly payout for a single male, age 66. He compared that number to what Social Security says he’d get at 66.

    According to ImmediateAnnuities.com, he would be able to take his total accumulated savings and purchase an annuity worth $3,427 paid monthly beginning at age 66 for the rest of his life. If he wanted to share the money with me, he could get a joint-lives payout that would pay $2,828 until we both died. There are no inflation adjustments during that time, and when both of us die, the insurance company gets to keep what’s left.

    By comparison, Social Security will pay my husband $2,415 monthly beginning at age 66. If I didn’t have my own Social Security, I could claim half of his — $1,207 — for a family total of $3,622. That’s $794 more than the private annuity would pay us. Plus, the Social Security money is indexed for inflation. When one of us dies, the other gets the highest amount of the two payments. When both of us die, the government keeps anything that’s left.

    By my lights, Social Security is clearly the better deal.

    The Bush administration wanted to partially dismantle Social Security and let people invest at least some of their contributions in the stock market. I haven’t heard much about that plan since the market went south in 2008. But some regular posters here still suggest that they could do better on their own. And maybe they could. But Social Security is a program designed to protect all of us, including those of us who don’t have what it takes to save and invest money on our own. I think that’s a retirement planning blessing.

    You posted a hack link. Anyone who's taken a college finance class knows a private annuity kicks SS's ass. Govt. not in the business of giving premium returns, jack ass.

    I have taken quite a few grad level finance and economics classes.

    You have yet to show the barest glimmer of the the knowledge required to make that determination.

    You are an idiot and every mocking post where you can't back up.your bullshit proves that.
