Is Retirement Worst-Case-Scenario Insurance?

On this episode, we tackle the question, “Is retirement worst-case-scenario Insurance?” This concept comes from the book, The 4-Hour Workweek, where Tim Ferriss says, “Retirement planning is like life insurance. It should be viewed as nothing more than a hedge against absolute worst-case scenario: in this case, becoming physically incapable of working and needing a reservoir of capital to survive.” In this podcast, we confront the idea of retirement being the end goal and we help you see retirement planning as tax-deferred, not life-deferred.
