Hi Chuck -

An excellent post. I saw the same article in the Online Editon of the Wall Street Journal, but didn't make the connection that you made.

As to answering your charge: So let's figure out a way to turn the country into a nation of Fools!; I would argue the best way for us to do this is person-by-person.

Find 1 or 2 people and convert them to Foolishness. Sit down with your best friend and ask them, how are you going to survive when you are 65. Start with your children as soon as they are born, and when they are 14 get them to set up Roth IRAs.

And instead of a dollar a day, but away 3 dollars a day and be prepared to share half of them with someone in need when you are 65.
