Inflation Station

Catalog #: 022-04-0008
Parent Exhibit: Moneyville
Description: Travel back and forth in time and learn about prices and inflation as you try to guess the price of a movie ticket or family car from several different eras. Select a time to “visit” (1935, 1940, 1960, 1980, 2000, and 2020) and see how the costs of the same five items (movie ticket, pair of jeans, bicycle, family car, and average yearly salary) have changed over time. Discover how inflation reduces the value of money, and that if income and investments don’t keep up with inflation, real purchasing power declines.
