You are confused, you forget built in Government inflation, something no one talked about in the recent elections.
One million dollars will be worth less than $100k in buying power in 100 years. 100 years ago 100 dollars had the buying power today of $3.46. So if you had $100.00, took a time machine to today, you couldn't buy a good hamburger or a gallon of gas.
People don't understand this, yet they vote!
