The problem I have with this article is that it only addresses yields... both bond yields and dividend yields on stocks have both gone down, sure, but stock prices have risen dramatically during the time period he mentioned.

Also, I didn't see if the $65K recommended applied to a family of four, a retired couple or a single person. A retired single person could live like a millionaire on $65K. (I could).
