Lack of Retirement Income Planning

By March 3, 2010Books and CD's

You may think you’re all set for retirement, but there are nuances to planning for your future that should not be overlooked.

These folks must make sure they’re accounting for lack of purchasing power due to inflation. Prices are going to go up. That’s just the way it is. Soon you’re going to hear someone say, “I used to buy a candy bar for a dollar and now it’s ten bucks!”
