The truth in numbers
The numbers don't lie. They tell a tale of a society living well beyond its means. This is why 80% of Americans are broke and living pay check to pay check.
The concept of retirement assumes a finite end of work. When one is older, they may not be able to work due to age, but for those capable and younger, the idea of retiring early assumes you are not doing what you love to begin with. In this episode, I react to many that are defending the idea of retiring early in a world of high inflation, low stock market returns, etc. rather than addressing whether the entire strategy is flawed to begin with. And I offer an alternative.
