On financial independence

To achieve financial independence, a state in which one’s asset generates more interest than one’s expense, it is generally assumed that one has to save early and save big, due to the power of compounding. This depends on one critical assumption, that the rolling return over 30 years remains largely the same regardless of the entry point in a 30 year period. Although accurate prediction of future returns is difficult to perform, computer simulations could be more easily applied to past data to confirm the assumption.
