In While America Aged, best-selling author Roger Lowenstein explains how corporations and governments ran up ruinous pension and health-care promises to workers - promises that are now coming due and that will hit America like a tsunami if nothing is done.

Negotiating high benefits means gambling with future finances - and when the farm gets sold out from underneath major corporations or public institutions, it affects all of us, and in ways we might not imagine. With his trademark narrative panache, Lowenstein unravels the truth about how pensions work in America and illuminates the impending crisis. Download and start listening now!

    " Great and important topic - but I never made it past the GM section. It is just too boring and technical. I hope a better writer addresses this important subject so the masses can get their heads around it... "

    " Dry as a bag of chips in the desert. As usual Lowenstein goes into excruciating detail. But really interesting, if you're into labor relations and pension plans. "
