I have had the above study figured, but it leaves me with little at the end.

Only in the worst case. Most of the time, using the SWR methods will result in more money at death than at retirement. This is even true when the portfolio starts off heading down.

JMO, I would adjust to the current amount in my portfolio in case this downturn is lasting longer than expected. So you tighten your belt a little.

I never said reducing withdrawals was a bad thing. I simply pointed out the error of your posted interpretation of the SWR methods.
