Not mentioned in this article, although droves of the newly retired who saw their nest eggs and home values destroyed in our recent economic meltdown are doing exactly this:  Retire overseas, where in many places living expenses are drastically cheaper than anywhere in the States (except for the grim areas, where no one wants to live).  There are overseas destinations with nice weather, decent and affordable healthcare and beautiful surroundings that offer a nice lifestyle at a fraction of the cost in comparable areas here in the States.

Not a lot of new information in this. I mean basically it says to save more, work longer, spend less and invest wisely. My fifth grader could have figure that out. (But he is very smart  LOL)

I hope youngsters are reading between the lines here...start saving for retirement early and with regularity or suffer the consequences.  When you do start early, your greatest advantage by far is compounding.
