Ameriks and Evensky on Retirement Income


Greetings after a long hiatus here at the Retirement Reseacher blog. A lot has changed since the last time I wrote. I'm no longer that "guy off in Japan" telling you how much you can spend in retirement, as one Yahoo! Finance reader once nervously noted. I'm now based out of suburban Philadelphia, working as a Professor of Retirement Income at The American College.  Making the move back to the US has been rather time-consuming, as I've needed to reestablish a life here. However, I'm starting to get caught up on things and will be able to get more active with blogging again. I have lots to talk about.

For today, I'd just like to draw your attention to this discussion of retirement income moderated by Christina Benz at Morningstar. It involves two of the leading figures in the retirement and financial planning world, John Ameriks of Vanguard and Harold Evensky. They make lots of good and worthwhile points in this 45 minute video.
