The market is going to crash on 2025, a severe one. On 2025, all the baby boomers born before 1960 will retire and thus are required to take
distributions out of their retirement accounts. Our population is an aging population where the number of boomers exceeds the number of genXers, and the trend continues where more people have less kids these days. The money to buy boomers stocks must come from the genXers and their kids who are the productive workers at the time. Now if we have more supply than demand what will happen? Stocks are said as the best investment vehicle for the long term. But this is a past performance and as we know it doesnt guarantee future results. In the past we have never seen so many people own stocks. But we have all the financial planners saying how good stock is, now almost everybody put their retirement money into stocks. Would appreciate if somebody can tell me why I am wrong.
