Agree. You clearly have a somewhat novel approach. Tell us about it?

My blog post I've posted a link to below outlines in section 6 how I calculate my expected return for the SP500. If anyone wants to discuss this I suggest they start a new thread, either for that particular point or the post as a whole. The reason I'm still responding here is that section 7 in my blog post is relevant to this thread; it details how I regard the capital you need to retire as something you have to calculate backwards from the income you intend to take and current projected returns on assets.
