The months since Spring 2008 have not been kind to the American economy or to the retirement accounts of millions of Americans. This program has undertaken a new mission, to help older citizens do better with a bit less and to navigate tougher financial waters with determination and good cheer. It features personal stories as well as expert commentaries. From light-hearted stories on self-defense and second careers to solid advice about money, health and Medicare, "The New Reality" talks to experts who analyze the financial problems of retirement and demonstrate ways to richer, healthier retirement years.
