Pressestimmen." . . this book provides a well-reasoned and readable antidote to the more hyperbolic and even hysterical claims of the 'doomsayers' documented by the authors. But more more than that, this is a thorough, insightful, and readable analysis of the key elements of financial security in retirement--Social Security, private pensions, employment, and health and long-term care." - Journal of Pension Economics and Finance
