## Buying power of \$100 in 1971

This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for \$100 in 1971 (price index tracking began in 1970).

For example, if you started with \$100, you would need to end with \$13,212,972.57 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

When \$100 is equivalent to \$13,212,972.57 over time, that means that the "real value" of a single Chilean peso decreases over time. In other words, a peso will pay for fewer items at the store.

This effect explains how inflation erodes the value of a peso over time. By calculating the value in 1971 dollars, the chart below shows how \$100 is worth less over 53 years.

According to the OECD and the World Bank, each of these CLP amounts below is equal in terms of what it could buy at the time:

## How to calculate inflation rate for \$100 since 1971

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1971 and today:

CPI today CPI in 1971
×
1971 CLP value
