Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Retirement Plans

Anyone annoyed or worried by the relentless TV and print ads implying that your best hope for a”brilliant” financial future rests upon hiring a corporate financial advisor, this episode is for you. Advertisers can’t promise specific results because that’s against the law, but they sure know how to use fear and greed to their advantage. John Oliver shows how saving for retirement means navigating a potential minefield of high fees and bad advice.
