Can the Economy Handle Retiring Baby Boomers?

Boomers don't need rocking chairsWith 10,000 Americans turning 65 years old every day of the year, the Baby Boomer Generation is having a retirement party to rival the birthday parties Boomers held in the fifties and sixties. But can the already-staggered United States economy handle the rush to rocking chairs?

What, no rocking chair?

It may be the fear is unfounded. The Boomer Generation is not a sit on the porch and watch the day go by sort of crowd. Boomers are active and Boomers are concerned. Moreover, with the help of the Internet–a tool that has provided incredible leverage–Boomers are finding ways to leave the normal workplace, drop the 9-5 rat race, and begin working from home (or the beach, or the mountains).

For a look at the bad news–and the good news–concerning Boomer retirees, take a look at this article from the Huffington Post.
