Joe Nunes:

#1 and # 2 have been tried and have largely failed. Time to move on.

While I agree with #3, I am not keen to have our government lead the charge and I think expanded CPP will come with more bureaucracy and administrative expense than we needed.

Finally, for #4, while it would be nice to recognize that work and retirement are changing and that people might be in a position to work longer – thus requiring lower savings – this is not going to be universal and we still need a system that allows workers to build reasonable savings by age 60 or 65 in the event that turns out to be the age they must retire.
