Dennis Miller is the author of Retirement Reboot and talks to Jason on his research on retirees and investing. Dennis surveyed Casey Research readers about what they thought the real inflation number was and over 3,000 people responded to the survey. Jason and Dennis both agree that there's no such thing as 'sit it and forget it' investments and you must become an active money manager in order to survive the coming years.
