The FT said 25-yr-olds should be saving £800 a month, and everyone lost their minds

Today’s 25-year-olds need to save around £800 a month over the next 40 years, to retire at 65 with an income of £30,000 a year, the FT reported today. It even sent out a tweet to that effect.

It was like throwing petrol on a fire.

It all started with this cheeky trying-to-be-millenial tweet

CBA = Can’t Be Arsed.

But is it really that people can’t be arsed? And so the match was lit.

People couldn’t make up their minds over whether they were angry at the ‘CBA’, or the FT’s attempt at sounding hip.


Actually the article is quite informative, but maybe the social media team needs a bit more help.
