I am not a samurai but even I could make $40 MM last 40 years withdrawing $300 k per year. 40 years of withdrawls even with a 5.4 % inflation rate and zero return makes it. An earlier posted said clickbait and they were right on.

I'm not trying to be argumentative but Sam puts out a lot of good stuff. This one post I agree is sensational but it is thought provoking and most of us do secretly fear to some extent that we could see a Japan type period where we go through the doldrums for a prolonged number of years. I think his post raised hackles because it triggered that fear we don't want to address. I do not agree with him on this but I don't mind him making me consider it. My opinion on Sam is he's extremely bright, a great dad, a killer tennis player and an out of the box thinker. His stuff is certainly a lot better than what I post.
