The British ONS (Office of National Statistics) has created and made public a Personal Inflation Calculator. As you would expect, it applies and compares the values you enter to the measured CPI in Great Britain, but it’s still pretty darn cool.
The ONS “is fighting back against accusations, fueled by newspaper campaigns, that its inflation index is inaccurate and underestimates the rate of inflation experienced by most people.”
Anyone want to take bets on how long it will take the BLS to create something like this too?
