What Are the Best Ways to Save for Retirement?

Doug Andrew has long had a saying that goes: “Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Never let it rest till good gets better and better gets best.” It’s a perfect way to kick off an episode in which Doug relates his thoughts on the best ways to save for retirement.

Traditional accounts like IRAs and 401(k)s, in Doug’s opinion, are not the best ways to save. They may have been a good way to save but they are both approaching becoming a poor way to save. A Roth IRA or 401(k) would be better but it’s still not the best way to build a nest egg that will see you safely through retirement and beyond. If you’ve never walked yourself through distinguishing between good, better and best, this will be a fun episode.
