Problems in Our Current Approach to Retirement

by Mary

MarketPlace had a very important story this weekend about why our Retirement System (the 401ks, etc) is in bad shape and we should be revising how we approach investing our retirement funds. Chris Farrell says our retirement system needs to be divorced from the greed of Wall Street and he makes the point that it is awfully good our Social Security investments weren't added to the expanding sinkhole. This is a doubly important story as we hear more news about the shadow banking system failures.

Listen to it here.
