## Buying power of \$1 in 2000

If you had \$1 in your hand in 2000, its adjusted value for inflation today would be \$1.72. Put another way, you would need \$1.72 to beat the rising inflation. When \$1 becomes equivalent to \$1.72 over time, the "real value" of a single US dollar decreases. In other words, a dollar will pay for fewer items at the store.

This effect explains how inflation gradually erodes the value of a dollar. By calculating the value in 2000 dollars, it's evident how \$1 loses its worth over 22 years.

## How to calculate the inflated value of \$1 in 2000

To calculate the change in value between 2000 and today, we use the following inflation rate formula:

CPI Today / CPI in 2000 x USD Value in 2000 = Current USD Value

By plugging the values into the formula above, we get:

296.276/ 172.2 x \$1 = \$1.72

To buy the same product that you could buy for \$1 in 2000, you would need \$1.72 in 2022.

### To calculate the cumulative or total inflation rate in the past 22 years between 2000 and 2022, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2022 - CPI in 2000 / CPI in 2000 x 100 = Cumulative Inflation Rate

By inserting the values to this equation, we get:

( 296.276 - 172.2 / 172.2) x 100 = 72.05%

### Alternate method to calculate today's value of money after inflation - Using compound interest formula

Given that money changes over time due to inflation, which acts as compound interest, we can use the following formula:

FV = PV (1+i/100)^n

where,

• FV = Future value
• PV = Present value
• i: Average interest rate (inflation)
• n: Number of times the interest is compounded (i.e. # of years)

The future value in this case represents the amount obtained after applying the inflation rate to our initial value. In other words, it indicates how much \$1 is worth today. We have 22 years between 2022 and 2000. The average inflation rate was 2.497192392602%.

Plugging in the values into the formula, we get:

1 (1+ % 2.5/ 100 ) ^ 22 = \$1.72
