this was VERY interesting - when I was in college 10 years ago (OMG! it was 10 yrs ago!!) I learned of the 5 stages of GRIEF: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Grief
When it comes to our economy, I think I'm at the anger stage, although the country is considered to be at the bargaining stage - but depression is next (and for all of you non-historians - it's not depression like recession vs depression - but depression like PROZAC!) and then I picture it to be GRIEF - like grieving over the loss of our wealth - not that I'm wealthy - but more like the loss of our 401K's.
If you're planning to retire sooner than 2018 all I can say is GOOD LUCK!! I doubt that you can and if you can, I'M JEALOUS!! I wish I could retire in 6 yrs but NO WAY now!
