Teresa Ghilarducci is the director of the Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis at the New School for Social Research and the author of the book When I'm Sixty-Four: The Plot Against Pensions and the Plan to Save Them. She also wants to see 401(k) and Individual Retirement Accounts replaced by "government retirement accounts." (Yes, I am having a bit of fun with the "most dangerous" tag.) In an interview with my guy, Kirby Wilbur of KVI 570 AM in Seattle, Ghilarducci says one of her goals is—you guessed it—to "spread the wealth." Go about 12 minutes into the interview to hear it for yourself, gang.
