Award-winning journalist Chris Farrell writes and talks about financial management and the economy, for places like Marketplace Money, Bloomberg, the Minneapolis StarTribune and Minnesota Public Radio. In this episode, he focuses particularly on his book, “Unretirement: How Baby Boomers are Changing the Way We Think About Work, Community and the Good Life.” The book has been hailed as a breath of fresh air, after years of gloomy reports that Baby Boomers were about to bleed America dry. Chris reports that retirement isn’t what it used to be, and that many older people are actually bolstering the economy by continuing to work, by starting new businesses and by volunteering vital services.
