Re: My generation: missing the boom years?
The entire cycle you are pining for took place over maybe 20 years. If you retire at 50, you will have been saving for longer than that and you will gain (and lose) from similar cycles of your own.
Your worst enemy is failure to just dive in and do it. Now. Your very presence on this board suggests that you know this. Hope I am here at 80 to watch you showing the youngsters how to get rich like you did.
