hocus: (msg87931) "Other asset classes [than S&P500 trackers and bonds] offer higher safe withdrawal rates."

CC: (msg87945) "What are these 'other asset classes?'" [that "offer higher safe withdrawal rates"]

hocus: (msg87953) "There are all sorts of possibilities: TIPs; ibonds; REITS; real estate; international stocks; and on and on." [emphasis mine; note neither assertion nor justification is offered that these are the ones which "offer higher safe withdrawal rates"]

CC: (msg87957) [again] "...please tell us what they are."

hocus: "..."

AFAIK, hocus, we're still waiting. A simple statement of which classes it is that you assert have higher performance, coupled with real data to support the assertion, would go a long ways toward both justifying your position and advancing your discussion.
