I wonder if people are starting to get confused by some of that Suze Orman/Dave Ramsey advice, where they tell you that you should at least put enough into your 401k to get the full company match. Then max out a Roth IRA if you qualify. Then, if you still have money to invest, continue putting into the 401k until it's maxed out. Then do after-tax investing.
Maybe a lot of people just hear that first sentence of "put in enough to get the company match" and then their eyes glaze over from the rest?
