The other day our friend John at Married With Debt hosted a guest post from Rob Bennett of Passion Saving. You might remember John from our collaboration on the relative taxation of Presidents Obama and Bush. Rob, on the other hand, is a bit of an enigma in the Personal Finance world. On the one hand, he has very interesting theories on safe withdrawal rates and buy and hold investing based on market valuations. On the other hand? He weaves a tale which makes the stories of Alexander Litvinenko and Gareth Williams seem somehow tame by comparison. I’m not going to touch that further than describing it (Google around if you care), but there is precedence for disruptive financial theories causing anger. Let’s tackle the merits of Rob’s arguments, shall we?
