Money Matters Episode 79- Americans Flunk Retirement Income Readiness, Now What? W/ Jamie Hopkins

Retirement income literacy is of essential importance to the financial security of retired Americans. With limited or no ability to earn additional money through work, this group must know how much they need to accumulate by the time they retire and know how to manage their money during retirement.

Further, retirement income literacy will become more important  as the number of people entering 
retirement with defined benefit plan guaranteed lifetime income decreases, life expectancy at age 65 
increases, and Social Security income decreases due to increases in the age of entitlement for full 
benefits.  In addition, the increases in Medicare premium taken out of Social Security retirement 
benefits each year will likely be higher than the cost of living adjustments to Social Security.

 

We were joined today by Associate Professor of Taxation, Associate Director of the New York Life Center for Retirement Incomeand Larry R. Pike Chair in Insurance & Investments for the American College, Jamie Hopkins.

"I can think of no other condition that places such heavy burden on society, families and communities and of course the economy."

- Dr. Margaret Chan, Director General, World Health Organization

More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's, the most common form of dementia, and unless a medical breakthrough is discovered that number is expected to soar to more than 7 million by 2025 and may be as high as 16 million by mid-century.

While deaths from other diseases, such as breadt cancer, heart disease and HIV declined from 2000-10, deaths from Alzheimers increased 68 percent during the same period. 

We were joined today by President and Chief Executive Officer of Alzheimers Foundation of America, Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr.

When life hands you lemons what do you do? Well complaining certainly doesn't help anything, and nobody really listens anyway. Truth is, most successful people have failed their way to the top. For every successful person that you see, what you don't see is the trail of bankruptcies, failed partnerships, and pricey mistakes that made them who they are today. So does that mean every entrepreneur has to go through the same horrors, heartaches and pain? Is there any way to avoid this?

Well one way is to learn from the experiences of others. . .

MJ Gottlieb's How To Ruin A Business Without Really Trying takes a new and exciting approach to help entrepreneurs by telling them what “not” to do. The book uses fifty-five painstaking, yet hysterical tales throughout MJ Gottlieb’s 21-year journey as an entrepreneur to highlight some of the most prevalent and destructive mistakes entrepreneurs make when running a business today.

Truth-be-told, entrepreneurs simply do NOT like to be told what to do. Learning from the mistakes of others however, takes the ego out of the equation so entrepreneurs can learn objectively, while still allowing them to enjoy the freedom of their own experience.

 

We were joined today by author, MJ Gottilieb.  We discussed his new book:

 How To Ruin A Business Without Really Trying
