Baby Boomers Are About To Inherit $8.4 Trillion

  1. Researchers estimate that 70% will receive inheritance. Combined, the amount will total $8.4 trillion.

    The average boomer household will receive $300,000, they say, with the wealthiest bunch receiving an average of $1.5 million.

    If you fit this description (lucky you), Forbes put together some productive ways to manage your newfound wealth.
  2. US debt is 14 trillion. If we tax it all, we can pay off half the national debt in one shot.
  3. taking 10,000,000 inheritance from someone already worth 10,000,000 is big but your still wealthy.
    taking 300,000, inheritance from someone worth 25,000 is how a civil war starts.
  4. I agree. The boomers were the ones that let this place go socialist. They don't deserve to inherit anything. Let it all go to paying the debt they ran up.
