On Friday, May 18, at 4pm Eastern Time, I will be presenting a webinar called, "The Rise And Fall Of The 4% Withdrawal Rate Rule On Retirement Portfolios" at Advisors4Advisors. My understanding is that anyone can freely attend by just filling out the registration form. They say it is free, anyway. You can just answer "no" to the question about starting a 6-month membership if you don't want to deal with that.
This is going to be 5am in Tokyo, but I hope to be sufficiently awake for a lively seminar. I'll discuss how the 4% rule came about in the first place, and what the various problems are with putting too much faith in it.
