Is Retirement Past Its Prime? The Economic & Behavioral Realities of Retirement
Retirement is an appropriate goal for every working American, but to businesses and entire economies it is becoming a question of future fiscal viability.
Retirement realities worldwide are changing because of the changes in population growth, a higher percentage of the population being in a stage of life where they don’t contribute much to the economy’s productivity (a/k/a retirees), and the move toward greater individual responsibility for saving, investing and retirement income.
Join us to explore the implications for the future of retirement based upon what has been learned over the last several decades.
In "Is Retirement Past Its Prime" by Michael Falk, you will gain insight into:
- How benefit planning and individual behavior must be considered in concert;
- The demographic trends effecting retirement;
- How higher inflation, less economic growth, and lower expected market returns will result from demographic retirement trends;
- The issues and the implications for the future of retirement and the investment portfolios of all.

Retirement planning thought leadership and expertise
Michael is an engaging, creative asset management professional, and offers equally engaging presentations and materials on retirement topics, behavior, asset allocation research and portfolio development expertise.
The asset consulting perspective acknowledges that the wisdom of crowds can denigrate into madness at times. Assets should be managed with the serenity to accept the market’s realities; the courage to pursue its opportunities; and the ongoing pursuit of wisdom to understand the difference.
