Ted Jenkin presents Why The 401(k) Needs To Be Replaced posted at Your Smart Money Moves.

In most 401(k) plans there are even more options including a multitude of mutual funds and in some cases a self-directed brokerage account if you are savvy enough to manage the 401(k) on your own. With all of this great news, here is the real problem. They just won’t work to help people in Generation X and Y be able to make work optional someday.

We want to retire by 40. The goal just got more challenging with me quitting my job, thus cutting our household income in half. Is it still possible for us to achieve this dream?
