    What's the meaning of the underlined?

    In real 2008 dollars, U.S. investment in agricultural development abroad fell to $60 million in 2006, down from an average of $400 million a year in the 1980s.

    Dear all,

    What's the meaning of the underlined?
    What does 2008 refer to?


    Thanks in advance.
