Beginning on Jan.1, 2006, every 8 seconds, another North American baby boomer will be turning 60. That's around 11,000 each day — and 4.5 million each year. So what will it mean for society — and the nation's finances. David Gardner talks about the changing face of retirement with Ken Dychtwald, author of The Power Years: A User's Guide to the Rest of Your Life.
