Is Retirement Dead? Most Americans Have No Retirement Savings


Six years ago, I wrote an article titled ‘Grasshopper Nation’, warning about how poorly prepared Americans are for retirement.

Sadly, the data has only gotten worse since then.

I’ll deliver the punchline here first, and then get into the underlying data:

Right now, as the largest generational cohort in history has reached retirement age, tens of millions of Baby Boomers in America have insufficient savings to retire or otherwis

e fund their living costs during their twilight years.

This is a massive economic and humanitarian crisis in the making, with no credible plans from the government currently on the table to address it.

In fact, we’re not even having a national discussion about it right now, because we’re not yet even acknowledging that we have a problem.

Until we shake free from this denial, we will continue to fall deeper into this hole of generational insolvency – while the timeline of consequences accelerates towards us at a faster rate.

Ok, now that I’ve got your attention, let’s look at the data…watch this video.

Retirement Reality-Check: Millions Won’t Be Able To Afford To Retire. Will You?


What happens when the majority of people can’t afford to retire?

We’re about to find out. A retirement crisis is looming dead ahead.

Simply put: we’re not saving enough to retire. We’re putting too little money away.

Every generational cohort is behind where it should be.

And the retirement game has changed. Rising cost of living, persistent low fixed-income yields, and longer life spans require more savings than ever needed before.

In this new video, I

detail out the stark math behind our current situation as well as what steps you can take to increase your own odds of retiring comfortably.
