Believe it or not, we are not heading in the right direction when we look at retirement planning issues. I’m not talking about the markets here. In fact, the markets should not do so bad in the upcoming years (I’m an optimist by nature!). But Government pension plans as well as many other companies’ pension plans will let you down big time. In a few years, we will be hearing a lot of “we are sorry, but…” stories like “we are sorry, but you can’t retire today with a full pension”.
