So if we tracked down all the jackpot winners from the current days and found them all 26 to 30 years into the future...where do you think they would be financially?
Specifically, I'm interested in how people would fare since a vast majority of jackpot winners take the lump sum option versus the annuity option. Do you think they would have accumulated and spent enough money to beat the total annuity option? Or maybe the USA is in bankruptcy and cash is not nearly as useful as bullets/water/fuel/non-perishable food items?
It'd be a pretty cool exercise to do. Maybe I'll have to keep this in mind and I can do this as a retirement project and make a documentary/book about it.
