Genre: Self-Help

George Burns once remarked, “You can't help getting older, but you can help getting old.” With twenty-five years of experience working with seniors and studying aging, the Erickson Corporation has amassed a wealth of insights that support this maxim. In Old Is the New Young, three leading specialists take the latest clinical research findings on aging and how to improve and maintain health to produce a one-of-a-kind book replete with easily accessible tools and simple steps that all those over fifty can apply to their own lives. Old is the New Young approaches aging as a three-part process: keeping what's intact; recovering what's been lost; and compensating when necessary. Weaving in inspiring life stories with plenty of laughs from seniors themselves, it comprises four sections that address the key aspects of life—mental, physical, social, and financial—and how to keep them thriving as we grow . . . young.

Privatizing Social Security

Author: Martin Feldstein
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
ISBN: 0226241823
Release Date: 2008-04-15
Genre: Political Science

This volume represents the most important work to date on one of the pressing policy issues of the moment: the privatization of social security. Although social security is facing enormous fiscal pressure in the face of an aging population, there has been relatively little published on the fundamentals of essential reform through privatization. Privatizing Social Security fills this void by studying the methods and problems involved in shifting from the current system to one based on mandatory saving in individual accounts. "Timely and important. . . . [Privatizing Social Security] presents a forceful case for a radical shift from the existing unfunded, pay-as-you-go single national program to a mandatory funded program with individual savings accounts. . . . An extensive analysis of how a privatized plan would work in the United States is supplemented with the experiences of five other countries that have privatized plans." —Library Journal "[A] high-powered collection of essays by top experts in the field."—Timothy Taylor, Public Interest

How to Retire with Enough Money

Author: Teresa Ghilarducci
Publisher: Workman Publishing
ISBN: 9780761187110
Release Date: 2015-12-15
Genre: Business & Economics

Here is a single-sit read than can change the course of your retirement. Written by Dr. Teresa Ghilarducci, an economics professor, a retirement and savings specialist, and a trustee to two retiree health-care trusts worth over $54 billion, How to Retire with Enough Money cuts through the confusion, misinformation, and bad policy-making that keeps us spending or saving poorly. It begins with acknowledging what a person or household actually needs to have saved—the rule of thumb is eight to ten times your annual salary before retirement—and how much to expect from Social Security. And then it delivers the basic principles that will make the money grow, including a dozen good ideas to get current expenses under control. Why to “get rid of your guy”—those for-fee (or hidden-fee) financial planners that suck up valuable assets. Why it’s always better to pay off a loan or a mortgage. There are no gimmicks, no magical thinking—just an easy-to-follow program that works.
