Editor's Note: For a recent Making Sen e segment, Paul Solman caught up with economist Teresa Ghilarducci to discuss why the job market is harder on aging women than aging men. We asked Ghilarducci to share some of her practical advice from her new book, "How To Retire With Enough Money and How To Know What Enough Is." The book also discusses retirement, savings, Social Security and why you should get rid of your financial planner. Below, Ghilarducci explains what older women face in the job market and some tips on how to beat the odds.
