Fox Enterprise Visitor Spins Survey Not To Afford To Retire In The Worst Doable Means
A guest at Fox Business took a terrible turn in a new poll that found that almost one in four Americans believes they can never afford retirement and have to work until they die.
On Monday’s “Make Money With Charles Payne” show, Donald Luskin, Trend Macrolytics’ chief investment officer, said that he would work forever and not retire, “personally I don’t worry.” In fact, he described the work up to to death as a “great blessing”.
I think I’m one of those people who plan never to retire. I mean is bowling that interesting? Is fishing that interesting? I love my job. Why do I want to stop? It’s not that it hurts. Why should I stop doing this? That’s great. What a great country where we have the opportunity to continue working. What a miracle when our lives are long enough and we are healthy enough and spiritually vigilant enough that we don’t have to retreat like generations before us. It’s a great blessing. You should take it.
Payne asked Luskin about the people who want to retire but can’t afford it.
Luskin admitted it was “a problem” but said questions needed to be asked.
“Were you the wasteful grasshopper instead of the ant that saved? I mean, if you were just playing around as a kid and not contributing enough to your 401k, or the economy just couldn’t offer you a job, it’s hard to know, ”he added.
The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs poll released on Monday found that 23% of workers expect to never stop working.
