Abstract

With this overview of how the different variable spending strategies performed historically, it is worthwhile to put a bit more effort into understanding the relative performance of these strategies in different market environments.

Toward this end, I chose the years 1966 (poor retirement environment), 1982 (great retirement environment), and 1946 (average retirement environment) to demonstrate the evolution of spending and wealth with the strategies.
