Editor's Note
Gail Perry, CPA, Managing EditorThis week, we’re featuring updates on the state of retirement savings in America. The news is not good. Approximately half of Americans claim to have no retirement savings at all, and those with retirement plans at work seem to think it’s their employers’ responsibility to provide them with education and to give them time off to handle financial issues. Can we just dial back the clock a few decades and start taking responsibility for our own future and stop blaming someone else for the pickles we find ourselves in? And P.S. – seriously, what do these people think they’re going to do when they can no longer work? Are we going to become a nation of Night of the Living Dead zombies, people who can’t work or take care of themselves, feeding off of those who are more able?

Best wishes,
Gail Perry, CPA
