Why do we need to invest?
It is vitally important in this current day and age for all of us to begin taking control of our financial situation and start planning for our future, and the futures of our children.
We can no longer rely on the government to hand out an aged pension once we retire. We cannot take for granted that at the end of our working life we will be taken care of financially.
The world population is ageing, due to the baby boomer generation, and within 30 years there will be so many retired people, compared to the number of working age people, that it will be economically impossible for the government to afford to provide any reasonable source of monetary assistance for the elderly.
