but the reality is there are thousands of very real 'improbable' catastrophic events that strike otherwise perfectly normal people with perfect normal insufficient reserves that force them to liquidate while underwater.

If a proposed strategy is vulnerable to that without sufficient reserves, its not a serious retirement plan. Maybe a fun gambling plan, but not 'retirement.'


Oh my word - how ever did people retire before IULs came along to save them?
