The American public was hoodwinked: 401(k)s were established to satisfy corporations, not the interests of working Americans. Portrayed as a perpetual wealth machine, the 401(k) was meant to satisfy the needs of every employee. Yet, it was an impossible promise to fulfill: It was the great 401(k) hoax. According to William Wolman and Anne Colamosca, this was the latest act in the gradual erosion of the nation's retirement system. Drawing from reams of historical and contemporary data as well as economic, social, and political trends, they reveal the system's troubled 100year history. Beyond exposing the hoax, the authors urge everyone to take charge of their investment portfolio and recommend strategies for beating Wall Street at its own game. Timely and incisive, The Great 401(k) Hoax is guaranteed to inspire debate and action-from the water cooler to the boardroom to the voting booth.

Review:

"A call for real pension reform and a rethinking of how to provide retirement security in this country."

"A hard-hitting evaluation of the 401(k) plans...[Wolman and Colamosca] deliver a disturbing message."
