Nothing New: Gen X in a Retirement Bind

Yesterday I read an article from ABC News, saying that the Great Recession’s impact on Generation X’s pocket book will impact the rest of their lives, particularly in their retirement years, in a negative way.

The Boomers will suck the system dry due to their sheer numbers, and the Millennials will shape a new system which will work one day (as hard as that may be to imagine today).  In the middle is Gen X.  Whatever our system is transitioning into Gen X will be in the middle, half in the new system, half in the old, facing the brunt of the changes and the pain of transition.

If there is one thing Gen X is good at, it’s adapting.  We’ll figure it out.
