The late Oscar Wilde perceptively wrote: “When I was young I thought money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is.” King Solomon understood this fact as well when he sagely recorded, “A feast is made for laughter, wine makes life merry, and money is the answer for everything”[i] along with “A good and honorable people leave an inheritance to their children’s children.”[ii]
Today, “It’s a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.”[iii] But the truth is, America is heading in the direction of having to test that bit of snobbery. Government wants more and more of your hard earned money to keep the social experiments and entitlement programs the politicians have promised to voters to gain their support. But the amount of money one is willing to forfeit to politicians for these social experiments will soon culminate and then the politicians will have only one solution to their money dilemma…your retirement savings accounts and social security.
Social Security is going bankrupt, taxes are rising on your retirement income and the baby boomers are retiring at a rate of 10,000 per day according to the Social Security Administration. [iv] Something big is about to happen and you need to be prepared for the financial curveball that the government is winding up to pitch you.
Retirement Curveball is your interactive resource guide to knowing what is happening and what to do about it so you are prepared for what’s ahead.
