The reality is as simple as it is terrifying: you simply can't retire on a 401(k). You couldn't do it before the recent stock market crash, and you certainly can't do it now. There's some good news, though. America is awakening to its retirement crisis. And, with the election of Barack Obama, there's a huge new window of opportunity to tackle this problem--and finally solve it, once and for all.
