Investing Blog Roundup: Two Announcements

I have two announcements for today.

First: a new edition of my book Can I Retire is now available (print version here, Kindle version here).

As far as what’s new, it’s all the usual updates (inflation adjustments, tax changes, etc.). In addition:

  • The discussion of tax-efficient spending from a retirement portfolio has been updated.
  • There’s no longer a chapter specifically dedicated to lifetime annuities. (With no inflation-adjusted versions available anymore, I have a hard time actually recommending them.)
  • There’s a chapter (recently excerpted as an article here on the blog) about the funded ratio concept.

I hope that you find the book helpful!

Second: at this year’s Bogleheads conference (details here), I’ll be giving a breakfast session that is specifically intended for the less-involved spouse/partner in a couple (i.e., the one who is not primarily in charge of managing the household finances). Conference registration won’t be required to attend this session.

We’re hosting this session, because we know there are lots of Bogleheads couples where one partner attends the conference and the other partner comes on the trip to do assorted tourist activities. The idea here is that this less-interested partner could pop in for this one breakfast session at no additional charge and get some useful information and a (less committing, less intimidating) introduction to Bogleheads. I hope you can join us.
