184 Hey…Have You Heard About the “internet”?

We're back after taking a week off and wouldn't you know it…Gen Y still doesn't like being forced to talk to insurance agents at their kitchen tables? (sarcasm light on)

This is a story that never gets old to us. It seems like financial services industry just discovered that the internet is here to stay. Turns out no one is interested in going back to the “good old days”.

Also, today we get into a new proposal that's been floated by a Clinton campaign adviser. I don't want to give it away, you can read about it below and listen to us discuss it in the episode.

Hint: Social Security isn't working out all that well (neither are 401ks), so let's start another government program to save retirement. And we'll make employers contribute money to it.

Here are the links to today's show topics:

Millennials Don't Buy the Old-Fashioned Way

A Good Retirement Plan Is Still Impossible

Dispatch from Retirement (one year in)

As always, we appreciate your comments and suggestions for things you'd like to hear us talk about (or complain about) in future episodes.
