See, that's the useless thing about that article. The takeaway is essentially this: "The 4% rule may not be perfect, but we can't identify anything that's better." Thanks a lot, guys. That was helpful.

o well.

i did find it helpful...

'splained in detail something i'd never really thought about, but
if i had, likely same conclusions (and *i* like having my conclusions supported by 'the Experts

namely :
why isn't it perfect? because 'perfect' means dying with a buck-eighty in your jeans ..but no one has a crystal ball

why is there no better alternative? because no one has a crystal ball


.... not using the 4% rule
