Right. That approach will be good for the stock market. In the 1930s we had panic runs on the banks, now we will have a run on retirement investments. So how many trillions will be lost in the markets?

If a ‘run’ happens on the markets share of 401(K) FUNDS, the value of the shares diminishes at a logarithmic rate so that the final value approaches zero. Even if you have substantial shares in your 401(k) they will be worth little or nothing......
