Purchasing Power of the US Dollar, last 100 years!
While the US Dollar countinues to strengthen in the market versus all, I made this graph to show you, how US Dollar lose his Purchasing Power during the last 100 years. This graph shows that, if you held a One US Dollar bill for the last 100 years, your ‘buying power’ will be 0.05 cents today. The main reason is inflation, which is from 1900’s averaged of 3.0% per year in United States. That means, that prices are going up every year while money loses its value. The Purchasing Power will continue to fall furder during the next period, because yearly inflation must be an average of 2-3% for helth economy and that shows that money worth less year after year. This means that you need to create more and more money to hold your purchasing power at least at the same level. Be aware of that and look forward for more then 1 day, or year!
