Demographic timebomb.

The tax-payer - and I don't think they'll get it back, niether do I think young couples will still afford mortgage repayments in an insecure future. :roll:


True. I have recently read that a lot of people are dreading the interest rates rising because they could only just about afford their mortgages in the first place. A case of 'Must have it now and worry about the future when it comes!' It is worrying that there will be a huge number of repossessions by the end of the year if this is really the case. On the bright side it might be good for the housing market!

Baby Boomer's have been retiring for about 6 years now - why do you think our governments are having troubles.


We had Social Security for retired people in a fund by itself - along came RAYGUN and plopped it in the General Fund - now I work until I am 70 and there still may not be any benefit (which I have paid into since I was 16). :twisted:
