Time Out New York's financial advice is for suckers

This piece ("401ks are for suckers"), ironically in the "Get Rich" issue of Time Out, gives young workers some of the worst advice I've ever read. It's an embarrassing read.

I hope it does not result in some diligent Time Out New York readers going: "Yeah! I want to snort cocaine in Berlin too! I like expensive cheese! The only way to have that hipster life is NOT to take my employer's matching funds!"

It's really irritating when important and potentially interesting information is delivered and interpretated by a moron.
