The article discusses the impact of the global financial crisis on people who are retired or preparing for retirement. It is noted that many will find it to be a stressful time, and saving for the future may be an unattainable goal for those who need to focus on spending less in a recession. The stock market crash of 1929 and the Great Depression which followed are mentioned, but it is said that historical examples can be misleading. Recommendations are provided for financial planners who are working on the retirement plans of their clients.
