One of the few no-bullshit articles on the topic.

I am an engineer, confessed frugal, but even I haven't got close to the 50-70% monthly savings suggested here! :(

"[But] you talk to people sometimes and you know they're not happy with what they're doing with their lives, but at the same time they're not open to the idea of something else."

Perhaps the most important thing you need for early retirement is an ability to break out of conventional societal programming — the persistent notion that a person has to work for four or five decades and retire at 65 or later to live a productive, fulfilling, "normal" life.

[Early retirement] usually means taking up some other activity that is more meaningful to them [than work] but which would be hard to make a living from such as raising children, saving the world, rock climbing, making art, open source programming, writing, etc.," he writes. "It doesn't mean doing nothing."

Interessante em como as ideias de vida mais simples e com menos dívidas podem produzir um efeito poderoso.

Intrigante. Non applicabile a tutti, di sicuro la maggioranza preferirebbe lavorare vent'anni in più e potersi concedere qualche cena in ristorante nel frattempo. Ma il principio "quando spendi per l'intrattenimento ammetti la sconfitta" cioè "pago venti euro e più per andare a ballare in discoteca bevendo cocktail annacquati perché la mia settimana è stata così noiosa e frustrante che ne ho bisogno" è molto logico.
Inoltre da questi articoli si capisce come la questione della pensione, un istituto che è stato concepito quando si immaginava che la maggioranza della gente ne avrebbe goduto per dieci anni massimo e invece ci troviamo ancora i nati nel '30 che hanno trascorso più anni da pensionati che da lavoratori, non è un'esclusiva italiana.

Algún año de nuestra vida deberíamos ver de vivirlo así! pero tendríamos que cambiar varias cosas :)

The basic framework of early retirement is pretty simple: cut way down on your spending, then invest your savings. High savings rates can lead to surprisingly fast retirements. For example, if you save half your income, you'll be ready to retire in around 17 years.
