Description - Working Longer by Alicia H. Munnell

One of the most worrisome aspects of the subprime crisis and subsequent financial collapse is the threatened security and adequacy of Americans' retirement. The best laid plans of U.S. workers have been endangered by a number of daunting factors-including a Wall Street slowdown, seized-up credit markets, falling property values, a collapsing auto industry, and a potential worldwide recession. Alicia Munnell and Steven Sass suggest a simple solution to this problem: postponing retirement by two to four years.
