You shouldn't save for retirement

Tossing out the link, not just for the lead, but for the linked articles in the thread topic. It's a Motley Fool read. No recap, but you can look at the headings to see if there's anything interesting to you. Not too heavy for a quick look.

I think it’s common sense that you need a emergency fund and then retirement savings. I was young when I married my ex and he was 10 years older. When we got married people gave us money and my parents paid for a small wedding and we paid part of it. I wanted to spend the money on furniture and he insisted we save it. Instead we took our parents hand me downs. Good call as 4 years and 2 kids later with me being a SAHM my husband got hurt at work and couldn’t work for 6 months. Worker Compensation was slow to kick in. Parents asked if we needed to borrow money. Nope because ex was smarter than me)

The money illusion link leads to what appears to be a political site that tries to tackle a few financial subjects. Not that interesting for me.

The first link is interesting, as Van said the second is too politically biased, whether correct or otherwise.

I save and invest.

It seems to have worked for me.
