Suzanna Sherry is Herman O. Loewenstein Chair in Law at Vanderbilt Law School. Christopher Sundby is earning a joint JD/PhD in law and neuroscience at Vanderbilt University.

My Money Blog Portfolio Income and Withdrawal Rate – March 2019 (Q1)

One of the biggest problems in retirement planning is turning a pile of money into a reliable stream of income. I have read hundreds of articles about this topic, and I have not yet found a perfect solution to this problem. Everything has pros and cons: stocks, high-dividend stocks, bonds, annuities, real estate, and so on. The imperfect (!) solution I chose is to first build a portfolio designed for total return and enough downside protection such that I can hold through an extended down...

Alexander: Marquee matchup at Indian Wells fails to appear as Rafael Nadal withdraws

INDIAN WELLS — It is the closest thing to a matchup of legends that the men’s tennis tour currently has: Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal. And it was supposed to be the centerpiece of Saturday’s schedule at the BNP Paribas Open. As they say in the business, never assume. The players did their part on the court in the days leading up to Saturday, but Nadal’s body – specifically his right knee – would not cooperate with the plan. Shortly before the beginning of the first semifinal, Dominic Thiem’s 7...

Shawn Porter faces Yordenis Ugas and hopes for different title outcome in Carson

Shawn Porter is a two-time welterweight world champion. He’s never been praised as much as other champions in his division, so when he lost his first title to Kell Brook via majority decision in 2014 at what was then StubHub Center (and is now Dignity Health Sports Park), the boxing world wasn’t shocked. Nearly two years later, Porter challenged Keith Thurman for his welterweight title and lost a narrow unanimous decision at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. That seemed to solidify the notion that wh...
