  8. What is a sustainable withdrawal rate for a world portfolio? | Monevator

    I’ve read many times that a 4% “safe withdrawal rate” is too optimistic, but not a simple breakdown like this of the adjustments to it that one should make.

  9. Book: Living off Your Money, by M. McClung -

    I got through most of this long topic earlier in the year, and the book sounds good. But it’s time to close the tab.

    Historical number-crunching, looking at one of the universal rules-of-thumb of financial blogs. (via Monevator)

  14. » Update 1 – From the Windy City Early Retirement Extreme: — a combination of simple living, anticonsumerism, DIY ethics, self-reliance, and applied capitalism

    Just for the metaphor about why it can be good to have a slightly popular blog, but not too popular: “if you’re living in the 16th century, discussing your round earth theory with fellow scientists is good. However, being publicly known as the round-earth guy will get you burned at the stake.”

    While I’m at it, the newish Financial Independence SubReddit is full of this stuff.

    Great thinking on long term futures. Kondratiev cycles, peak oil, the downturn, the next world war, generations. Well worth a read.

  21. Early Retirement Extreme: — written by Jacob Lund Fisker, Freelancer

    Fascinating to read something like this (save 70-80% of your income, invest it, spend little, retire after five years) written by someone who has the perspective to know it’s not for everyone. (via Oliver Burkeman’s Guardian column)

  22. Early Retirement

    By Philip Greenspun. One can dream. Two general tips: don’t read news/email in the morning or your brain will fill and you’ll get no work done; and spend more time with other people to increase happiness — computer programming is bad. (via Kottke)
