Marshaling a persuasive array of facts and figures, Karpel offers startling proof that our generation will have nothing like the security that our parents had. The shrinkage of Social Security, the collapse of the pension system, the long-term decline of the housing and stock markets - all will herald a "Great Depreciation" that, combined with the fact that we're going to live a lot longer than we can possibly plan for, will throw masses of Americans into the streets.
The Retirement Myth contains a wealth of resources and advice you'll find invaluable, whether you want to know which industries and countries to invest in for maximum return; which skills you should hone to ensure that you'll always be employable; or how you can expand your consciousness - and society's - to celebrate the wisdom that only aging can bring.
