The Awesome Tower of Beer!

Roth IRA The Awesome Tower of Beer infographic


The High Life in a new infographic from RothIRA.com that visualizes the awesome tower of beer you could buy if you were to save just $1 per day starting at age 25.

Getting older has its benefits—how about all the beer you can drink? All it takes is a dollar a day (and a really, really large fridge).

Want to learn more about a Roth IRA?

Designed by InfoNewt (my company), this design follows the strategy of telling one story really well.  There are hundreds of charts online showing the power of compound interest and why people should invest early for retirement.  We took a different approach to put the power of those savings into terms that young adults are more likely to relate to…BEER!

Thanks to the team at RothIRA.com for being great to work with!

the data is flawed, because it use 2012 beer price bought with 2057 money.

if we use the same rate of inflation as the last 45yr, the beer would cost 3.33$, thus giving a tower of only half of burj kalifa (1400ft).
