Johnny Dean, Ohio State University, Michael discussed on The Ray Lucia Show


Johnny dean, John. Hey, I saw only twenty six percent of Americans are retirement literate had you seen that actually. I saw this in Forbes this morning, and I was going to write something about it. But I hate to do that. Because it sounds like it sounds like bad news to people like they either they feel stupid or they're not ready for retirement. And I don't want to start on a down note. But that that shock I was actually going to write an article on that. Eighty six percent of Americans are retiring illiterates. All right. Well, that's good. You know, at least I think that's how they consider themselves. I wonder you know, I don't doubt that one bit. I guess it depends on how you define literates. Exactly. So many people think they've got it right now. In fact, it's right on topic is a lot see, Johnny. And I don't really talk about what we're gonna talk. Let's just show up. What? A lot of time. You had your I have my sort of meld together. I. Oh, lord. All right there mountain dew. No, it does depend on how you define retirement. And in fact, I was going to get to this. I don't know if I can do it right now because they can't get it in my hot little hands. It might be for next hour, but RBC actually did a study on this whole retirement literacy thing. Yeah. And what retirement is going to look like in the future. And it's quite fascinating. When you read it way in the future or like for people like you look at it, the next thirty forty years think about what what retirement is gonna look like when you're eighty five years old am thirty years from that hobby lobby thirty years. I'll be eighty five Allen tell you what I'll be thirty thirty years ago. I was twenty five that wasn't that long ago. So so let's let's talk about this day. We talked about protecting your retirement against stock market crashes today in that theme along the same lines. I keep coming back to this. Why bond funds don't belong in your retirement portfolio? Oh lie. You need a system to create a paycheck in retirement. But I start today with oh, there's another one is it time to bail on bonds. But I want to start with this because I don't think anybody is going to argue with these credentials. Okay. Let's see. Geez. Academic officer at the American college of financial services.
