The wage gap has been proven false. I guess this is what I should expect from WSJ.

Market sentiment is only useful around the water cooler. I personally prefer my water filtered and at room temperature.

I don't think you are serving the retail investor with your coverage. Please help her recover from such useless guidance; also the WSJ is presumed to be expert and a trusted reporter.

I knew was not right about having a target date fund alone, but was reluctant to look. I didn't think tdf would devour this much in saving. Thanks for the website fund analyzer.

2008 was not the only one,So thanks for sharing this bad news,And true but also don't think it just about people not wanting to do so their are several factors that can stop them.Look how everything has risen and like they said stay the course.But scaring everyone is not the way to make people warm and fussy.It's the smart thing but you have some that would rather not listen and waste their money as well.Keep up the Awesome podcast.Maybe instead of making people nervous try and advise them and hopefully they will do so.Or the ones that never take it seriously will start to.Thanks again hopefully people will here better news.
