Purchasing Power of the Consumer Dollar (1913-2017)

Graphic of the Day (above) shows how the value of the US dollar has lost more than 96% of its purchasing power since the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913. Consumer prices have gone up more than 24 times since 1913, meaning that a $1 bill from 1913 would have less than 4 cents in purchasing power today.
