Different World | Different Economy

I cannot imagine working hard for 40 years and reaching the age of 60+.  What it must be like to find yourself unable to work with 20 years of life left and no savings to sustain your life.  When I was born in 1938, life expectancy was 59 years; now it’s nearly 79.  It is a different world and a different economy, and we must solve the problem of how we support those who have done so much, but whose lives now are extended far beyond their years of production.

  1. I'm 65. I thought I was set for my "golden" years. Seems it's not working out the way I planned. For what ever reasons my wife and I are now raising and supporting 2 grand children, 4 and 9. What we thought would be enough for us, isn't enough for us and the kids too so, we continue to work and are thankful that we still can.
