For example, if you started with $1,000,000, you would need to end with $5,082,148.59 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

Future inflation is estimated at 3.00%.When $1,000,000 is equivalent to $5,082,148.59 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 2023 dollars, the chart below shows how $1,000,000 is worth less over 55 years.

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

Raw data for these calculations comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index (CPI), established in 1913. Price index data from 1774 to 1912 is sourced from a historical study conducted by political science professor Robert Sahr at Oregon State University and from the American Antiquarian Society. Price index data from 1634 to 1773 is from the American Antiquarian Society, using British pound equivalents.
