Very important principle!
Need to couple it with a projected future cost of living (current plus inflation) Then determine approximately how much capital needs to be accrued to live off the interest and work back from there to determine investment required.

Paul commented on Earning Your Future

This is basically true of Australians too (perhaps except those 30 and under) despite a relatively good retirement scheme that invests about 10% of gross wages in retirement funds on employees behalf. For those with little or no income many here qualify for publicly provided housing and government welfare based on redistribution of tax revenue. The main problems with that are the benefits provided often don't cover basic living costs and (as with USA) top earners have artificial ways of reducing their tax liability to zero, and thereby make no contribution to the common good.
