Book Overview

Checked your forehead lately? See a use-by date? No? Then why on earth are you worrying about retirement? Wake up - retirement is a dumb idea with no place in modern society. It's absurd, economically unviable and can kill you. In a radical, bound-to-be controversial but definitely thought-provoking new approach to the second half of your life, David Bogan and Keith Davies challenge you to turn everything you've been conditioned to think about retirement...

The Avoid Retirement book is an excellent example of an economic paradox: How do you retire if less than 20% of the American people have a pension? The majority of Americans cannot retire because they do not have a pension and are under constant risk of losing their 401 (k). About 80% of Americans have $45,000.00 in their 401 k and most American can only expect $1,200.00 from social security. If we add this up, we find that most Americans (80%) will make about $1,500.00 a month or $18,000.00 a year for retirement. Many have substandard health care programs and do not factor in the cost of health cost.The top economic forecast out of the Netherlands economist has argued we will be beginning a 30 year inflation cycle: this means higher prices for goods and service that the $18,000.00 a year will be receipe for buying pet food. The book should be rename named avoid retirement and avoid economic disaster. The other 20% are making substantially more than $18,000.00 a year and the books advice is excellent because the retirement industry propaganda is based on economic fantasy and you need to plan for living and not dying. This book helps Americans avoid a generational disaster: the mass retirement of Baby Boomer will create an economic deflation and depression. They will retire on a "kool aid" high and find out they will be living in poverty. The Boomers stairway to heaven is stairway to mass poverty or economic hell!

Just what I was looking for!

Well,finally, a realistic book about "retirement". As the book says in the beginning, retirement was developed just to make room for younger people in the workforce, but we don't need to do that anymore. In fact, companies will need us because we are more educated, and have better work ethics than the younger set - and, many of us must keep working if we are to live. If you want to retire and go to an island somewhere, this is not for you. But, if you need to keep working, or want to keep working, this is a good book to read. I've looked at so many books on retirement about saving money for the long haul ahead - like 20-30 years of retirement. There is NO way I can retire, nor should I have to just because it's the thing to do.
