My usual basic advice for reasonably wealthy retiring people is half and half Berkshire and RSP.

Good advice, but how about 5% of total portfolio invested equally In BABA, TCTFY, and BIDU as a hedge against the risk that growth in Southeast Asia overwhelms the S&P 500 by 2030?

You are paying a 5% insurance premium against the risk that China eats the S&Ps lunch. If China does out perform, these three stocks all by themselves could well provide a cushion for under-performance by American centric indexes.
