Re: 2046: A Boomer Odyssey

C-T -

You are correct on the savings aspect. I guess I have a hard time believing, given those 2 opportunities, Boomers have so little. I incorrectly assumed Bomers should have plenty of wealth. If that is the reason then many Boomers will never see a comfortable retirement, especially if the market does not perform as well as it has in the past 15 years. Gonna be real tough to beat that opportunity.
