<<There quantities become equal at N = 12. Therefore, if you are planning to die before age 77, retire early.>>

You have to include inflation and the time value of money to do a proper analysis. At 3% inflation and 10% time value of money, the break even age is 94. If you expect to make only 8% on your money, the break even age is 84.
