some of that if the fault of our society that both provides no education ...

A major failing of our society is promulgating the meme

"get a good education, get a good job, and they'll take care of you".

Whoever 'they' are.

Most educational disciplines push the 'someone else will do it for you'... they do NOT teach how to be a good personal finance manager. They don't even teach about 'retirement plans'.



Robert Kyosaki's message in "Rich Dad Poor Dad" counters this meme.
