What the ten minute experts [this is the time that they said that they spent investigating my research] continue to get wrong:

The most serious error was freezing the research at its original findings. The original findings suggest using a high stock allocation with annual rebalancing. This turns out to be a horrible choice for today’s retirees.

Freezing the research also froze out the solutions. Knowing that selling shares at depressed prices causes failure, a much better alternative would be to rely on dividend strategies that avoid the need to sell. This turns out to be far superior to the liquidation strategies.

Have fun.
