#105 - Where Do We Go from Here?
Over the last four episodes, we’ve explored how individuals fare in today’s retirement system. In the final episode of our first season, we ask: where do we go from here? We speak with baby boomer and literature professor Ira and millennial and PhD student Owen to explore how both younger and older generations are affected by our retirement system. Next, we hear from our expert round table, including host Teresa Ghilarducci and guests Beth Finkel, the state director of AARP New York, and New School economist Tony Webb, for a discussion of the future of retirement policy. From age discrimination to a lack of retirement plan coverage, Teresa, Beth, and Tony talk about the policies we need to make a better system for everyone a reality. Finally, we highlight research showing millennials are ready to take action and a group working to inject retirement security into the 2020 presidential campaign.
