What is the best asset allocation for someone either retired or on the verge of being retired?

Here's the answer!

Also, just how much money do YOU think a person needs in order to retire?

Depends on where you want to live, and what sort of life-style you want to lead.

I actually figured it out when I first came to Motley Fool. I entered 5 years of our expenses in Quicken and looked at them to see what I wanted to change. Then I estimated our tax burden and added that in. We needed $2,000,000, but we live in an expensive area. And I don't remember if that included college and weddings for the kids or not.

I'm currently figuring it out again.
