I think about 40%. BTW, you should have added the option of an increase, since there are some people that believe salaries will rise.

"in the future"

what does that mean? whats the timeline?

40 years into the future?

if its 8000 years into the future i think they'll decline to $0 since humanity would be extinguished.

:laugh: spatulas you are ridiculous. Want to make a wager on that online? http://www.longbets.org/ At least all the money goes to a good cause!

I was being completely serious. 8000 years from now some crazed nation-state may even own a death star (if there are nation-states). cool website btw :)

Honestly, I think humanity may end in the next 200 years. Its not an absurd idea. Look at the violence, polution, global warming, ecological damage, extremist groups, etc... now!

i think they will rise at least 3% yearly - to keep up with inflation.
