MONEY: Retirement? fuhgeddaboudit!

Never Say Retire
by Gary North

*** begin quote ***

I had concluded that millions of baby boomers would discover at age 65, much to their chagrin, that their plans for a comfortable retirement had been smashed by the reality of low economic growth, low returns from the stock market, their own insufficient savings programs for decades, and inflation. I figured that I might create a Website based on the theme, “never say retire.” I have not developed that site, but at least I set up a department on my Website. So, if anyone types the words “never say retire,” he is directed to my department.

*** end quote ***

The truth about retirement. Argh! “We”, as a society, waste the first 25 years and the last 20+ years of life. “School” isn’t about reading children to take their place in the civilization creating wealth. “Retirement” isn’t about the “golden years”; they are removed from the workforce at the height of the wealth creation capability. Argh!

Retire? fuhgeddaboudit! (translation from the Brooklyn dialect: “forget about it” with a sneer.)
