Ambivalence: This demonstrates everything that is wrong with rhetorical economists (especially Randians). less than 10% of the population makes "$100,000 after taxes". And far far more than half do not make enough that they can afford to sock away half for retirement.
ExperianScaresCthulhu: unlikely: TFA: Saving 100% of your lifestyle sounds impossible, but it is not. If you earn $100,000and we're done here.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
blipponaut: Yah, let's not enjoy life and save money instead! Fark living with roommates, I need my space. I may not be saving OODLES of money, but at least I enjoy myself. As far as retiring early, why? As a teacher I get every summer off and by the time it's over I'm happy to go back to work. Work centers you more than anything else, especially if you actually enjoy doing it. Yes, for the most part I enjoy work. It sucks sometimes, but everything sucks sometimes.
Smelly Pirate Hooker: Don't worry, you guys. Saving for retirement is totally easy, just follow my 7-step plan:1) Get somebody else to pay for you to go to college so you don't have to take out any loans2) Get a really great, high-paying job when you get out of college3) Don't become involved in anything that results in legal proceedings, like divorce4) Don't buy a house5) Don't have kids6) Don't ever lose your job7) Don't develop any health problems that cost lots of money to treatSee? Easy.
The Southern Dandy: Save 43.2% of my annual income. Riiiiiiiiiight!Is this a joke, or a troll or something?
