Greetings, Spiritpalms, and welcome. You asked:

<<Why has the IRA contribution limit remained at $2000 for so long?>>

The answer to your question is really rather simple. The limit is established by law. Any change to that limit was be enacted by Congress. To date, the Congress hasn't seen fit to change the present limit. Why? Only our illustrious leaders can answer that.
