Default John Oliver, Last week Tonight on Retirement Planning

Last night John Oliver hit pretty hard against financial planning and retirement planning. He did this in his usual hilarious (at least to me) method, while highlighting some real concerns with the industry.

It may seem odd that a financial advisor here would encourage people to watch this video as it basically takes a sledgehammer to my industry. The thing is for me there are some parts of this video that I wholeheartedly agree with. In Canada we do have some differences, and some things here he kind of glosses over or is just not completely accurate about. Unfortunately though, the fact remains that people can hold themselves out as financial planners or advisors with almost no qualifications.

Anyway, its an interesting take on the industry. I would love to see some discussion on this topic here!
