In The New Retirement , global economic strategist Sherry Cooper explains that the boomer generation will be reaching traditional retirement age very soon and the enormous wave of boomer retirees will crest in 2025. This phenomenon will profoundly affect the labour markets, the economy, and financial markets for decades. But will boomers retire they way their parents did? Will they work longer and transition gradually into semi-retirement?

Cooper tells us that boomers will redefine retirement with great energy and creativity, working well beyond age 65 and mostly by choice. With the dramatic rise in their longevity, healthy goal-driven boomers will seek purposeful leisure--focusing on regeneration, rejuvenation, and low-stress contributions to society and their own personal wealth.

Follow Cooper through her own journey to discover the route to financial security in this engaging and insightful read. Learn how the new retirement is about living well while achieving both monetary security and your personal goals.

The New Retirement is an indispensable roadmap to the best years of your life.

This book's focus is as much about demographics as retirement. Written for the baby boomer but relevant for their children as well it has a lot of predictions which seem grounded in fact.
A quick, informative and engaging read.
