## Buying power of \$100,000 in 1959

This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for \$100,000 in 1959 (price index tracking began in 1959).

For example, if you started with \$100,000, you would need to end with \$279,067,087.80 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

When \$100,000 is equivalent to \$279,067,087.80 over time, that means that the "real value" of a single Colombian 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 1959 dollars, the chart below shows how \$100,000 is worth less over 63 years.

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

## How to Calculate Inflation Rate for \$100,000 since 1959

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1959 and today:

CPI today CPI in 1959
×
1959 COP value
=
Today's value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Colombian CPI was 1 in the year 1959 and 2790.6708779867 in 2022:

2790.67087798671
×
\$100,000
=

\$100,000 in 1959 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as \$279,067,087.80 in 2022.

To get the total inflation rate for the 63 years between 1959 and 2022, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2022 - CPI in 1959CPI in 1959
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (63 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

2790.6708779867 - 11
×
100
=
278,967%
