The point is that negative "interest" can happen just when you need to withdraw the money for retirement so that the 10K you withdraw is really more like a 15k hit to your account.

But then, I think you understand that so I don't get why you are asking about what point is being made. D'Oh! | :doh:

The confusion comes in when you call it interest, when it's really growth.

Interest is guaranteed, growth or earnings is not and can be negative. So better to call it growth to avoid confusion. But you most likely knew that already.
