Given a philosophy of primarily holding bonds, one would (if starting young) create a latter of 30 year bonds (each year buying new long bonds) and therefor be able to boost the average interest rate. It would allow someone who started at 20 years old to start recycleing their first bonds at age 50 and be two thirds through the second cycle at 70.
