About & Contact Us

This site was created to serve as a comprehensive resource for inflation-related news and information. A main focus is to provide a simple and always up-to-date US Inflation Calculator, which is one of several free online tools available on the site.

The calculator allows users to input a dollar amount and a year, and it will calculate the equivalent purchasing power of that amount in any other year since 1913. This is important because inflation erodes the purchasing power of money over time, meaning that a dollar today will not buy as much as a dollar did in the past. The calculator is an essential tool for anyone who wants to understand how inflation affects their finances, from budgeting to investing and retirement planning.

In addition to the Inflation Calculator, this website provides a wealth of information on inflation, including its causes, effects, and historical trends. Users can access articles, charts, and graphs that help them understand the impact of inflation on the US economy, as well as its effects on their personal finances. The information on this site has been referenced in books, by colleges and universities, regular classrooms and other media sources.

This website also reports on monthly inflation data published by the U.S. Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. It includes the latest news and trends related to inflation, providing timely and relevant information on this important economic topic to readers.
