I decided to run a scenario of where we would be had we decided to retire on Jan 1, 2000 with $1M. AWR = 4. Annual inflation rate = 3.

N (yrs) = 11. I/yr = -0.9%. PV = $1,000,000. PMT = $40,000. FV = $484,612.

Anybody who decided to retire on January 1, 2000 with $1M will have 48.4% of their (real) portfolio's value today. That's pretty scary.
