How is inflation on 500k calculated?

The Consumer Price Index aggregates prices in the US over time. The rate of inflation is then compared based on the change in the CPI.

For example, the CPI was 10 in 1914 and 306.746 in 2024. So the amount in 1914 is multiplied by (306.746 / 10), or 30.6746. So 500,000 in 1914 had the same purchasing power as about 15,337,300 in 2024.
