I have questions that while very basic could have enormous consequences to one's ability to retire early. It regards the source of % income that is often written about and will be dealt with in the Fools retirement portfolio, as well. If one has a portfolio of 25% bonds/75%stocks and takes 6% annually as income, where does the 6% come from? For instance, is it a combination of the yield from the bonds and from the selling of stock and dividends, or just from the selling of stocks?Is there a reasonably ez way to take in account long term effects of the annual capital gains incurred when selling to obtain income?The models I have read about do not make these issues clear, but rather only deal with a % income. Therefore, I find it difficult to be confident about the base $ necessary to consider retirement.
