  • Retirement's 4% Rule: Surprising Answers You Need to Know About the Inflation Factor [View article]
    Do these calculations take into consideration the likely devaluation of the U.S. dollar? Bernanke will do everything in his power to devalue the U.S. dollar because projections have shown that the only way we will be able to meet thr rising healthcare costs of baby boomers and solve our deficit problem is to try to inflate our way. If the US dollar drops 50% or more in value and we start importing inflation in the 4% to 5% range, US multinational stock dividends won't get the job done unless most of their business is overseas in countries with stronger currencies (e.g. not Europe). Investors will be forced to take more risk and invest in dividend growth stocks from countries with stronger currencies, commodities and other real assets to maintain their purchasing power. Many dividend stocks from countries like Brazil dropped 70% to 100% during the 2008/2009 downturn, so are not suited for conservative investors.
