Does the S&P500 return 10% annual for 48 years? No, it does not. Actually, from 1926 thru 2012 the annualized return of the S&P 500 was 9.84%, HIGHER than the 8% and 9.2% numbers shown.Here's a blog showing S&P 500 annual returns, it took about 20 seconds to pull up these results. If you don't want to believe them I could find the Ibbotson monthly data I have floating around on a spreadsheet somewhere, but these appear to match the results I've seen elsewhere:http://financeandinvestments.blogspot.com/2013/03/historical...I could also take rolling 48 year periods and list the returns for all those time periods. I can pretty much assure you that the majority will be higher than 9.2% and certainly higher than 8%. I would expect (given your responses so far) that you'll try to deny or handwave away those results, but the offer stands.-synchronicity
