Recently I was interviewed for articles in TheStreet.Com and Investopedia. In both of the pieces, the theme was how to deal with procrastination with retirement savings. I was going to write my Accountable Update this week on the behavioral economics theories behind why people put off savings and investing, but decided to do my own research instead.
I’ve got my ideas, but would be interested in the reasons you believe people put off planning and saving. I'll share and discuss the results next week!
