21. Not correct across the board

I would have at least 3x my current retirement if I had put the money in a coffee can vs 401k. Out of school for just over 10 years. Never have made enough money to afford a house at 21st century inflated rates. If I am lucky, I may be able to get one at a foreclosure auction within the next decade.

I am white collar, college educated, white male. 50k salary range in an area where that is higher than median.

Am I on the streets? No. I am an indentured servant to my student loans with slim chances of ever owning any real estate and it with be a miracle to be able to retire prior to death.
