Retirement a Pipe Dream, Shocking Study Reveals

Thursday, 16 February 2012 05:14 PM

It’s a frightening statistic: 33% Americans have no retirement savings. As in zero, zilch, nada. NOTHING! In fact, nearly a quarter of those age 65 and older have already depleted all the retirement savings they may have had, according to a Harris poll.

The cataclysmic result . . . many would-be retirees are being forced to make "other arrangements." Most are simply cutting back their standard of living. However, some have no choice but to do what many once thought unthinkable . . . move in with their children.

Others are reluctantly planning to work until their death . . . if there is work to be had. In fact, it was recently reported that 1.31 million Americans age 75 and older are now working, a 25% jump from previous levels.

One thing is sadly clear — retirement is becoming nothing but a quaint, outdated notion. A pipe dream.

Aftershock Survival Summit Video, Watch NowIn his book Aftershock, economist Robert Wiedemer not only anticipated this crisis, but also offered a lifeline of solutions for the average investor.

"The medicine has become the poison," Wiedemer explains in this New York Times best-seller. In other words, the very cornerstones of retirement — Social Security, real estate, and the stock market — have crumbled.

Many have turned to Aftershock for answers. And, experts are taking notice. The S&P calls Wiedemer’s work "a compelling argument for a chilling conclusion. [His] track record demands our attention."

Editor’s Note: Watch this powerful interview with Robert Wiedemer (it is packed with practical guidance).

Wiedemer recently sat down for an in-depth interview with Newsmax to explain how he came to such drastic conclusions.

Originally screened for a private audience, this Aftershock Survival Summit has gone viral with over 30 million people taking time to get practical advice from Wiedemer on how one should navigate these treacherous markets.

In this gripping, no-nonsense interview, Wiedemer minces no words naming those responsible for the financial debacle and describes in shocking detail how America’s greatest generation — and its descendants — have been betrayed by reckless government economic policies.

He also provides disturbing evidence and financial charts that point to economically cataclysmic times ahead, including 50% unemployment, a 90% stock market collapse, and 100% annual inflation.

And, it’s not as if these dire predictions can be easily dismissed.

After all, in 2006 Wiedemer and his team of economists predicted with chilling accuracy the four-bubble meltdown in the housing, stock, private debt, and consumer spending markets that nearly sparked a second Great Depression.

Unfortunately, Wiedemer’s warnings went unheeded at the time, and subsequent advice has been largely ignored by the powers that be, including Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and President George Bush.

But fortunately, the 30 million people who have viewed the Aftershock Survival Summit are heeding his advice — and have benefited.

Understandably, response to the Aftershock Survival Summit has been nothing short of phenomenal.

Russell H., a financial market adviser from Wichita, Kan., says the Aftershock Survival Summit "scared the hell out of me. It was a great wake-up call."

Susan G. from Montgomery, Ala., called it "eye-opening, and mind-boggling."

Richard B. from Apison, Tenn., reflects, "It gave me the courage to make a move which, had I not made [it], would have left me behind the 'eight ball.'"

The Aftershock Survival Summit may not be for the faint-hearted, but it is a necessary dose of reality for those who want to defend themselves and their loved ones from the hard times that Wiedemer is convinced are dead ahead — as well as a solid blueprint for reclaiming your financial future.
