Description:

According to award winning journalists William Wolman and Anne Colamosca, the American public was hoodwinked: 401(k)s were established to satisfy corporations, not the interests of working Americans. As they convincingly demonstrate, this was the latest act in the gradual erosion of the nation's retirement system. Drawing from reams of historical and contemporary data as well as economic, social, and political trends, they reveal its troubled 100-year history. Beyond exposing the hoax, the authors urge everyone to take charge of their investment portfolio and recommend new strategies for beating Wall Street at its own game. Timely and incisive, The Great 401(k) Hoax is guaranteed to inspire debate and action from the water cooler to the boardroom to the voting booth. Book jacket.
