oof, he's so wrong though. The interest rates, & therefore the compound-interest returns, we saw over the last 40 years are long gone in the US. The GFC changed everything -- yields are 1/100 of what they were over the past 40 years. So 40 years of saving from now to 2060 will actually devalue your money (the ~$1,000 of interest from a savings account will be easily outpaced by inflation) 🤦🏻‍♂️ 🙃
