    Just for fun!

    I used this website as a guide

    http://www.duke.edu/~rnau/411infla.htm

    How much is the XJO worth in "2006 dollars".

    Mar-2012 CPI is not out yet. I hear the RBA really doesn't like that ABS only puts out numbers quarterly when all the other developed economies run a monthly number.

    I think the calculations are wrong. There is no way that prices are 1.58x in Dec 07 but only 0.9x in Sep 07.

    If you take Dec-06 as the baseline = 1, the Mar-07 figure should be 1+(0.024/4) = 1.006. Better yet use quarter-on-quarter figures although I can only find them back to Dec 07. Second last table from the bottom.

    I must have misinterpreted the guide :/

    Here's one with your calculation

    This is a longer term view that I have posted previously as part of a discussion on real returns. Sorry it is not updated for recent months.

    This looks about right... To be fair XJOAI the accumulation index would probably paint a better picture for the market.

    Inflation really creeps up on you, doesn't it. I needed to stop and think about how things are 15% more expensive these days than 2007.

    I can’t drag the chart into pane which says “Drag previously uploaded files into this area to attach them” (not sure why) so I put it up as an image ”“ might be the problem.

    This was the original post - maybe you could view it there or give me an education on how to reattach old charts.
