    Inflation will slowly chip away at the value of £100k. In 50 years it will not be worth much at all.

    I would say £100k at today's value is that much as a vast majority of the population are never likely to reach it.

    I very much doubt anything other than a small minority of financial workers etc in London consider it anywhere near an average salary.

    I suspect not. So we can conclude that a £100k salary isnt considered alot by children of parents who earn more than that. Compelling conclusions indeed.

    I certainly wouldn't say no to a £100k salary but it is interesting to think that being a millionaire these days in no way means you are as rich as it would have say 20 years ago!
