An opposing view: Andrew Biggs, scholar at AEI, writes that there is no retirement crisis, using data that says that, when you take into account not just pension and Social Security checks but also the spending down of savings, today’s retirees are not any poor than working people, and, at the same time, despite the drop in DB pensions, future retirees should be doing fine because the total amount of money being directed into pension savings (both 401k and employer pensions) is increasing.
