Un-selling the Retirement Myth….
Fortune Magazine has a great write-up this month about retirement. Now, I recently wrote about the Baby Boomers having on average $44,000 saved for retirement. But you can’t really get that mad at them. After all, they grew up when everyone believed in pensions and social security.
So how do you fix this mess?
Answer: Let the media ‘sell’ people on the idea that it’s far better to just keep working!
“Who needs retirement anyways?”
“It’s over-rated, statistically you won’t live as long if you retire”
On and on they’ll go…
Keep an eye on this. It will be interesting to watch how this gets played out more and more in the coming years.
