Some good points on low savings rate, reduced pension, high long term care cost, and inflation.  One should be aware of these shortcomings and make the best of it.

A good article. Thanks for posting it 51hh. I find Fed policy effect No. 4: Costly long-term care premiums, very accurate. The insurer for my LTC policy, which I took-out in 2004, no longer writes these policies because of the low interest rate environment.
