MM Mock Exam 3 AM Question 7-C

If you guys have this mock, I got to 102,000/13,338,000 = .0076. How come we don’t increase this amount by inflation, THEN increase by taxes?

The answer uses .0076 as after tax real return.

I believe that you don’t increase it for taxes because it asked for the after-tax return

I could be mistaken.

One more question on this - why don’t we subtract the current year living expenses in T-1 when calculating the end of current year portfolio value?

Because the author naïvely assumed that the candidates would realize that the gentleman had held back enough to cover his living expenses before he deposited USD 8.5 million into his portfolio.

The updated vignette makes that position explicit.
