Default Do you invest in your 401k or whatever?

I guess it's time to start thinking about that.

My alternative is real state, which I also don't know much about as of yet.

EDITED:

What if you know that at someone point in your life, well before retirement, you are going to leave the US forever and never come back?

Is this really a Careers question? Maybe it would be better in NAT?
