Boomer wishful thinking

A research project that was undertaken by a group including the Harvard school of Public Health that found that US Boomers have an unrealistic ideas about their life post-retirement.

Most baby boomers say they're planning on an active and healthy retirement but when you compare their ideas to the reality, as expressed by retirees, there is a bit of a gap.

The image shows the proportion of people saying they expect the factors to be worse - the pre-retirees. This is compared to retirees who say that it has been worse in retirement than it was in the previous five years.

Maybe this is to be expected since the future is rarely like you expect it to be - at any age. Dick Stroud
