Reverse Inflation Calculator

Reverse Inflation Calculator

The most common kind of inflation calculator lets you enter a current dollar value and an inflation rate, and it will tell you the dollar amount of that value in the future. For example, you could enter your current salary and an estimate of the average annual inflation rate for the next five years, and the calculator would tell you what your salary would need to be in five years in order to maintain the same buying power that you have today.

The Reverse Inflation Calculator does this in reverse: It enables you to enter the dollar amount for a future point in time and an estimate of the inflation rate for the time period between now and then, and it will tell you the current buying power in today’s dollars.
