There are people who are believers of Saving and Fixed deposit.

Here’s the Math for them.Assuming I strike lottery $1M dollar on 1st Year. The next year I start to lose $29,100 due to loss of purchasing power. Many people cannot even save that amount of money to compensate for the yearly loss.

Year Principal Fixed Deposit Inflation Effective Purchasing $
1 $1,000,000 1.00% 4.00% -3.00% $970,000
2 $1,000,000 1.00% 4.00% -3.00% $940,900
19 $1,000,000 1.00% 4.00% -3.00% $560,613
20 $1,000,000 1.00% 4.00% -3.00% $543,794
Continue my way till Year 19th. Original $1M left with $560,613. On the Year 20th, I will lose another $16,819 that year…
