I’ve posted Entry #41 in my weekly Beyond Buy-and-Hold column at the Out of Your Rut site. It’s called Robert Shiller Pulls His Punches.
Juicy Excerpt: My claim to fame on the internet is that I am the person who discovered the analytical errors in the Old School safe withdrawal rate studies. I helped lots of people out with that one. But it wasn’t the word “thanks” that I heard most often in response.
I had people threaten to kill me. I had people say my parents are alcoholics. I had people say my children don’t respect me. I had people say that my wife has left me. I had people tells lies about my financial circumstances. In short, I had people trying to plant an impression in other people’s minds that I am something less than “professional.” I’ve been Shillered!
