Re: My Escape Plan - Insights Wanted

I was about to raise the same question. Ok down here getting 5% is doable on bank deposits but getting harder to achieve. In the US with interest rates much lower than in Oz I'd have thought 5% would be a fantasy unless you ran a very stocks and shares portfolio but that to me doesn't fit in with getting away from it all.
