Buying power of $100 in 2020

This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for $100 in 2020 (price index tracking began in 1635).

For example, if you started with $100, you would need to end with $115.93 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

Future inflation is estimated at 3.00%.

When $100 is equivalent to $115.93 over time, that means that the "real value" of a single U.S. dollar decreases over time. In other words, a dollar will pay for fewer items at the store.

This effect explains how inflation erodes the value of a dollar over time. By calculating the value in 2020 dollars, the chart below shows how $100 buys less over the past 5 years.

This table shows the results of the inflation prediction, with base values from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

Year Dollar Value Inflation Rate
2020 $100.00 0.90%
2021 $103.00 3.00%
2022 $106.09 3.00%
2023 $109.27 3.00%
2024 $112.55 3.00%
2025 $115.93 3.00%
