When it was first published, What If Boomers Can't Retire? predicted what would happen when boomers switched from buying stocks to selling them for retirement income. Since then-and as predicted by author Thornton Parker-stocks have become less important, prices have declined, corporations have shifted their emphasis from inflating stocks to just surviving, and there is currently a recession in full swing.
This book shows that there is a bright side, however. If enough boomers work in their later years and preserve their capital, and if the country improves the way it uses capital, the results can lead to fuller lives for millions of people, healthier communities, and more sustainable economies worldwide. Parker details specific actions that individuals and organizations can take to gradually make the shift from the dangerously risky pursuit of phantom wealth to productive investments based on real accomplishments, goods, and services.

Par autoru (2000)

Most people specialize in one or a few fields and progress up through them in what are often called stovepipes or fence pickets. Thornton (Tip) Parker has done the opposite by deliberately working on tasks that require knowledge of multiple fields. He is a generalist with more than forty-five years of widely diverse government and business experience in management, strategic planning, finance and accounting, manufacturing, marketing, personnel administration, transportation, technology management, large computer and information systems, intergovernmental relations, assistance management, and policy development.
