As a member of the 75-million-strong-baby-boomer-club, I get a bit bothered by the incessant finger pointing and placing of blame that we are receiving lately. It seems that the retirement that we have saved for all of our lives now threatens non-retirees in ways previously unforeseen.
If you believe what is being said, we baby boomers are responsible for everything from possibly crashing the stock market to costing manufacturers hundreds of millions of dollars due to the absence of skilled workers caused by our retirement.
I happen to believe we have had some positive impact on the world around us biased though I may be.
