Inflation and deflation calculator

The inflation and deflation calculator shows how a price or the purchasing power of money will develop in future based on a certain inflation or deflation rate. In this context, purchasing power indicates the value that money will have in the future.

The calculator allows you to select a starting value (in euro), the expected rate of change in prices (as a percentage), a period of time (in years) as well as the outcome (future price in euro or the purchasing power of money). The development is shown as a graph. The graph also shows the development of a price/purchasing power given an average annual inflation rate of 2 %, based on the ECB Governing Council’s inflation target of 2 % in the medium term.
