If I think of my order of concerns,
- Proper planning for healthcare costs
- Finding the right balance of investments as I get older

For many, failure to start saving early enough. Failure to participate in retirement plans like 401k.
For sure this is true, but I could easily make the case the idea people invest too aggressively as merely a way people deny failing to begin saving early enough. With that construct, these people did not do anything wrong – rather somebody (maybe the government) screwed up the economy.
