Didn't specify whether or not the $2M would be adjusted for inflation. By the time $2M is accumulated, $80K may not go as far as it does now.


Yes, but if we are not talking current dollars then the question has absolutely no meaning. $25K might be enough if I'm talking 1850 dollars. I stand by my assumption as the question, "How much" means nothing without some assumption of commonality. I also assumed US Dollars.
