Baby boomers swell ranks of retirement-aged Canadians
Statistics Canada yesterday released another batch of information on the 2006 census and (surprise, surprise) the population is getting older. There is a great deal of debate about the effects of this on the economy. I can certainly attest to the fact that recruiting young workers is getting more and more difficult.
How will this affect the cost of goods and services that all of us will need to purchase while FIRE?
This is actually a great opportunity for FIREes who might be interested in occasional work to top up the portfolio. Sounds like the incentives will increase.
Don't bite me because I said that!
