Firecalc in the news

I see no point in putting this in the Firecalc forum since it seems to be more for "how do I do this or that". A quick push of the search button didn't turn this up either.

If it's already been mentioned elsewhere, then a moderator should ax this.


I'd rather be sailing.

Re: Firecalc in the news

... CFB will likely appreciate: "The cost of living in retirement is often confused with the general level of macroeconomic inflation in the economy. Note that, for many years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has been computing a CPI-E (Consumer Price Index), an experimental inflation index for retirees, which differs from the CPI-U (urban) or the CPI-W (wage earners). The projected increase in a retiree’s annual expenditures might only be loosely correlated to the widely quoted CPI. "
