Comment on Winging it through retirement: 30 percent of Americans have no retirement savings. by Jon http://www.mybudget360.com/winging-it-through-retirement-savings-nest-egg/#comment-335075 Mon, 17 Nov 2014 23:35:22 +0000 http://www.mybudget360.com/?p=5928#comment-335075 I like how CNBC’s Suze Orman constantly tells everyone to give all their money to wall street, and to work until 70 to retire. Great solution to the real problem, inflation / inequity.

Comment on Winging it through retirement: 30 percent of Americans have no retirement savings. by Rick Adams http://www.mybudget360.com/winging-it-through-retirement-savings-nest-egg/#comment-335021 Mon, 17 Nov 2014 20:53:27 +0000 http://www.mybudget360.com/?p=5928#comment-335021 Where would you like to see these young put their hard earned currency ? In the stock market. Good luck with that. How about CD’s. Now there’s a great return. The whole damn system is rigged. The bankers would like nothing more than for you to put your wealth into ” their ” system. Giving them the privilege to steal your currency. Look at what just happened at G-20. If you don’t know, then look it up. I tell my grandkids that right now ” Cash is trash “. Go buy some Silver.

Comment on Winging it through retirement: 30 percent of Americans have no retirement savings. by Ame http://www.mybudget360.com/winging-it-through-retirement-savings-nest-egg/#comment-334718 Sun, 16 Nov 2014 15:38:22 +0000 http://www.mybudget360.com/?p=5928#comment-334718 I would like to see what Figure 9 looked like after the stock market crash in 2008. I can bet the yellow bar was a WHOLE LOT closer to the green bar! So, I don’t think this graph is realistic considering how the stock market has been pumped up to unrealistic heights. Much of what makes up the “savings” in the yellow line will go *poof*. If you have your money in the stock market, it’s NOT savings for retirement. It’s gambling that money will be there when you need it.

Just ask those who lost 40% of their retirement portfolios in 2008. They are the gray-haired, stooped cashiers you see toiling at jobs once held by teens and early 20-somethings. They ran out of time to see compounding regain what they lost.

Plain ol’ vanilla savings account is real savings for retirement.
