You mention that you use Shiller's data, but not how you use it. Most other research using his data refutes yours, and one can see the calculations.

You might be interested in the Current Research series. Current Research A is relevant as well as several other sections.

I added a series of modifications to John Greaney's Retire Early Safe Withdrawal Calculator (and I have made them available for download). This is the source of my Historical Surviving Withdrawal Rates.

Have fun.
