Item Details

Nine harsh realities and nine practical solutions from Gordon Pape, Canada's trusted and widely read financial expert In this hard-hitting new book, personal finance expert Gordon Pape zeroes in on the realities of retirement that confront Canadians, including collapsing pension plans, a tax system that works against us, pitiful savings rates, and the fact that there are no "safe" investments. What lies ahead is a series of wrenching changes to our retirement system as governments and corporations struggle to cope with a tidal wave of harsh economic, demographic, and social realities. But it is not all doom and gloom if you take control of your money now! With his trademark take-action advice, Pape helps you to understand the realities of retirement and offers practical solutions for protecting your family's future in a rapidly changing world. If you want to ensure that you have enough money for retirement, Pape's approach to finance will teach you how to create a financial plan that works, pay off debt (and stay debt free), invest wisely, understand your pension plan, minimize taxes, and more. In these lean times, Retirement's Harsh New Realities is a must-read for all Canadians. Take control and learn how to protect your future.

It clearly explains what Canadian government benefits are available and what ones you will not be entitled to - depending on your situation, the combination of choices you make and $ amount you will or will not receive. With these facts, you can work out your best decesions before retiring.

It is also excellent for giving an overview of investing for younger workers.

This book states the fact without giving any information that can be used today. So duh, we know already that investments are bringing in terrible return and are pushing off retirement to later than expected. This book doesn't provide any useful answer to what we should we do about it.

Only a beginner might find this book useful.

Freedom 95! So 1940s babies get to enjoy a fully subsidized 30+ year vacation while later boomers get to work until they drop.
