    It's unfortunate that most people haven't a clue about how to save for retirement.  You can lower your taxable income by putting money into a retirement account.  

    lowering your taxes means you get to keep a few more of your dollars.  those dollars would go to your retirement account, which could grow fairly well in good times.  

    if we all did that, maybe we would have more good times than bad...

      and few have that. Otherwise, it's simply a smaller paycheck, because most of us will not change our marginal brackets by reducing our pre-tax income for any reason.
