TMFPixy:
Probably the better question should have been:Assuming a 1 million investment and a 35 year time period what would be a good burn rate leaving only about 50K at the end?What rate of return,inflation rate,etc is being used to arrive at this pre tax figure?How much(%) should be taken off the top for 1-5 years of expenses?Your help is greatly appreciated.I am impressed by the promptness of your reply.BTW I also participate on the Mechanical investing and foolish workshop boards.Bassattack/wayne
