The Great 401(k) Hoax : We live in volatile and tumultuous times. The cumulative effect of the war on terrorism, the recession, and the recent corporate scandals, have shattered the sense of security of the American family. These forces have collided to expose the threats to prosperity that pervaded in the 1990s. Many employees have seen their 401(k)s shrink overnight, the result of a two-year long slide in the value of stocks. The resounding message that emerges from this book is that it is disastrous to let employers, Wall Street, or politicians do your thinking for you. Beyond exposing the sham that passes for protection of the family's long-term assets, the authors urge everyone to take charge of their investment portfolio and recommend strategies for beating Wall Street at its own game.
