Didn't ever think I would see something like this Money moves to make if you A Wall street reporter not spewing "everyone must work to 70 or beyond. A small bit of fresh air from the mainstream media.

Good article. It covers a lot of the basics, with an emphasis on the 'unexpected early retirement' scenario.

Most of the FIRE crowd planned their exit well in advance, and were almost certainly aware of the points in the article. Those who are getting close but not ready should bookmark this. If they find themselves launched into early retirement by matters outside their control it may come in handy.

Indeed. In fact, if more people *do* wait until they are 70 (or older) -- or even to 65 for that matter -- it will just make the unemployment problem worse.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

Well, I did my share. When things went south at my last job I (and 18 others) quit, thus opening 19 other now not-so-good jobs, but those jobs will at least keep bread on the table for those who really need it.
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
