Book Description:
The long-term trend in declining retirement security has been exacerbated by the recent turmoil in the financial markets, and underscores the need for swift and broad action to vastly improve the retirement income security for the majority of American families. Americans need to be reassured that the money that they will save for retirement will actually be there when they need it. The exposure to large market swings, as we have experienced twice in the past decade, can send individual investors scrambling for an exit at the most inopportune time. This prevents them from saving enough, and actually increases their exposure to financial market risks. This book examines the impact and issues of the financial crisis on retirement security in the United States.
