10 Steps to Reforming Baby Boomer Retirement

In my "book in process," Platinum Living, I make several recommendations as to how our government could reform the social security system, but they boil down to this. Only 20% or so of all "baby boomers" are planning a traditional sort of retirement. This represents a great opportunity for our government to "save" the social security system. And boomers, for our part, must be open to such changes, getting past the usual "How does this affect ME right now," analysis and looking at the effect on our country and our children.

In other words, boomers must take the lead in eliminating the idea that social security reform is the "third rail of American Politics."

Meanwhile, I came across these interesting, if more traditional, proposals from Kiplinger at http://www.kiplinger.com/businessresource/summary/archive/2007/10_retirement_steps_NCPA.html
