Here are two really wonderful pieces on Social Security and Retirement we highly recommend you read. My Faith-Based Retirement by Joe Nocera at the New York Times describes his all-too common personal experience with 401K’s while economist Jared Bernstein provides some desperately needed myth-busting in his Rolling Stone piece, Straight Talk on Social Security. While we don’t agree with his suggestion to move to a chained-CPI, he’s right about the need to push back on all the lies about Social Security’s fiscal health.
