>> Guyton has told me he's considering doing just that. Until we see this more nuanced research, however, I suggest sticking with the traditional 4 percent withdrawal rate. <<

He claims 6.2% could do it, though. It's not clear to me from the article if this 6.2% is also adjusted for inflation.

Also, instead of starting the retirement "test" in 1973, starting in 1966 might have been more interesting.
