Thanks for sharing that article, Shorebreak.  I enjoyed reading it but it's easier to have "confidence" in our days of old when we knew we were getting decent interest rates on our money.  Nowadays, I am concerned that the idea might be "why bother" with these low rates.  It's a very hard time to be a saver or to have the confidence that you can ever reach your goal.

"Openness. Top retirement savers are big on asking for “objective guidance” from experts (meaning a stockbroker, accountant, lawyer or financial adviser). Those workers who ask for professional help were much more likely to be power savers, BlackRock reports."

That reminds me, I should call BlackRock today to ask for sound financial advice; or am I too confident, optimistic, and diligent a person to do that?  :D

Ally:

"Peterson's views are subtly infiltrating the Washington debate — which is why Americans should start getting worried about him. He isn't content merely to express concern about the federal deficit. His particular targets are Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, which he calls "entitlement" programs and which he wants to cut back in a manner that would strike deeply at the middle class."

Shorebreak----You are 100% correct. That is what my articles stated I thought. If they did not you needed to let everyone know about him. Thanks
