A thousand dollars Cool

What is truth -

Charlie is exactly right; he answered the question you asked.

What I think you meant to ask is:  What is the "purchasing power" of $1,000 today, compared to 20 years back?"

Due to inflation (in costs of goods and services) the purchasing power has declined.  That data is available, but I don't know it offhand.  I will guess it might be worth between $600 to $800 in purchasing power, compared to 1990.  Just a guesstimate.
