Amassing monetary capital in a safe-place such as a bank to get by in retirement is a contemporary, self-serving concept: Yes, in old age, people need care; but a check each month to help them pay for necessities reduces "care" to a mere monetary transaction. This entire concept is sterile and inhumane. Amassing capital, as well, benefits large financial firms and others who easily use the money to enrich themselves; the capital may or may not ever be given back. Hence, an entirely new concept of old age and retirement ought replace the current model. For instance, it is self-serving for big corporations who pay wages to suggest Americans needs more immigrants to "take care of" our aged population through payroll deductions .... when maybe Walmart could pay lower dividends to shareholders; pay workers more, for instance? And similar corporations; the reason we need massive immigration is to keep big finance and capital "happy;" it is tied to the outsourcing and globalization our leaders have endorsed in America for years -- at the great expense of working Americans; and as a result people don't have the MEANS to rear families; or more accurately, BELIEVE they should not have families or aspire to be parents; of course, we NEED other demographics to have as many kids as possible ... All-in-all, you are on the trail of something big that needs to be brought to light; and counter-manded.
