Time Magazine Managing Editor Mr Stingel on MSNBC’s TV show Morning Joe.

16 seconds: “The 401k needs to be retired. It is not working for millions of Americans.”

47 seconds: “The 401k was never meant to be the primary retirement vehicle for Americans. It was set up in the 1970s as a tax  dodge for executives.”

2 minutes: “The disaster is that as you get older your options are reduced and there is a quirk where the market goes down you have a higher chance of losing money. “

Stingel recommends an “Insurance Pension Plan and contributing 6% of your salary every pay cycle.”
