# Safe Withdrawal Rate Theory

These graphs show the relationship between Historical Surviving Withdrawal Rates and Professor Robert Shiller's P/E10. The actual relationship is with the inverse of P/E10, the percentage earnings yield of the S&P500, 100E10/P.

### Switching Graphs

Here are graphs of Switching A and Switching B 30-Year Historical Surviving Withdrawal Rates HSWR versus the percentage earnings yield 100E10/P. These have allocations that depend on P/E10, Professor Robert Shiller's measure of valuations.

Switching Graphs

You can learn how to do better than Switching A and Switching B by practicing on the Scenario Surfer. For a good introduction to the key concepts, listen to Rob Bennett’s RobCast#12:
