* In this hard-hitting Real Vision special, Raoul Pal presents the single most important financial topic of a generation -- the Baby Boomer retirement crisis. He asks the hard questions: Can you afford to retire? How will the coming crisis impact your life? What risks are you unknowingly taking with your retirement? Moreover, will the insufficient retirement savings of the largest generation in history cripple the economy? Raoul also explores how savvy retirees might avoid -- and even profit from -- the threatening crisis. In addition, Raoul also offers a glimpse of a brighter future, in which smart millennials take control of their own financial destiny and side-step the crisis.

The Coming Retirement Crisis | Real Vision™

What’s very comfortable now may not be so comfortable later on. That’s when I might have to take out my mutual funds.
My only worry is my dad works for the state of Illinois. The state’s pretty much insolvent. And even his health care, which is through the state of Illinois, it could take up to a year for him to get reimbursed for things like that, so that is worrisome.
Justine Underhill: Retirement is all some people ever think about, especially the 50-million-plus Americans set to retire in the next few years. They obsess over it, like my dad did. It’s what they worked for. It’s their dreams. But those dreams could be shattered. You’re about to hear Real Vision’s founder and CEO, Raoul Pal, explore why we’re heading into a retirement crisis in America and around the world as many people take on more risk than they understand.
I was curious to see if anyone was thinking about this, so we spoke with people in New York and heard the same story over and over– people pushing off retirement, people not having enough savings, people relying on government pensions. Here’s some of what they said.
No. No way I could have saved enough for retirement.
I mean, I have enough to retire, let’s say, if I want to go to Wyoming or something like that.
I saved enough for at least the next 10 years. Who knows with inflation what will happen, but I feel the next 10 years, I’m OK.
If the United States government goes out of business, then my pension won’t be there.
These stories were just a small sample of what we heard. And this is not just something that those actively looking for retirement are going to face. It’s something that’s going to have a big impact on my generation as well, whether it’s figuring out pensions, or social security, or potentially supporting our own parents’. Retirement is part of the promise of life in the developed world. And if that promise isn’t met, it’s really going to affect everyone, whether you’re hoping to retire in 5 years or 50.
Roaul Pal: My name’s Raoul Pal. I’m the CEO and co-founder of Real Vision. But today, I’m talking on behalf of Global Macro Investor, my research business. I want to talk about what I think is the biggest, single theme of our generation. And I think it’s the most important thing that anybody can understand. And it’s all about the pension crisis.
You see, demographics is the big story of our time. And it’s all about the story of the baby boomer generation. This was the largest generation of people the world had ever known in the richest countries in across the globe. Now, that generation drove all of the macroeconomic forces that we come to recognize as normal.
When they first came into the labor force back in the 1970s when they 20 or so years old, what they did was they bid up the demand for goods. Because if you think about it, a record number of people came in to buy their first suits, their first house, their first car, their first table, their first chair. Everything was new. That demand created an enormous problem for the world to deal with, and it created the inflationary environment of the ’80s.

    Cooking yourself is still quite a bit cheaper than McDonald. My food bill is about $100 a month. Buy cheap cuts of meat. Chicken breast with rib-attached is still 99 cents a pound here.

    We need to cxl student debt to give millennial more money to spend. We need to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour to get some of the money back in the economy from the billionaires that put it in offshore tax havens. We need Medicare for all so people aren't drowning in medical debt and can then spend more.We need big infrastructure and climate projects that create high paying jobs so people have more money to spend . Tax the billionaires and put that money back in the economy

    One of the things never mentioned in these type of videos is that there are no longer any social security savings accounts. When Bill Clinton was in office a balanced budget bill was passed. The U.S. did not have the money to balance the budget so they stole all the money from the SS accounts to balance the budget and afterwards repealed the bill. Now our SS checks are from the debt ridden U.S. Treasury. We were robbed by our Government.

    You forget about the american millenials, and the shale revolution's biproduct of making the US an industrial powerhouse again. Immigration will come into play too for the americans.. its not the US I would worry about, it is the rest of the developed world which has less of this and more of the bad stuff..

    2 years on, Bonds make sense but the problem with bonds isnt the bonds, its all the derivative products that make up as much as 90% of the bond market.

    If there was not so much irresponsible debt, there would be no "crisis" If the government can give the very rich more tax breaks and allow them to have more money than ever, again what crisis? If our legislators have billions and trillions to financially manage, what crisis? I worked forty years and have a pension below poverty level, I KNOW who enriched themselves!!!!!

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre

    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.

    This is a common problem in the developing world (Africa, Asia, Russia) where a pension is not offered. The solution is to return to the family or extended family. If you pool your finances with family and add your services to the family the difficulties are diminished. If the state is wise enough to make this type of contribution by the younger generation tax deductable, I think the problem will be manageable.
