Because inflation is the decrease in the value of a dollar over time, the "older" dollar is always worth more.

Well, this is a trick question. There is no inflation involved here, but it's made to look like that. When you think about it, the numbers are numbers and not years, so 2,007 are 1 cent more than 2,006. -XD

1960 pennies are worth more. Wrong!.... 2008 are worth more... its about quantity not YEAR Clever. But I would point out that the 1990 pennies would probably be worth the most due to the fact that they contain more copper =)

529 savings plans CAN adjust for inflation. This is usually based on the state your in and how large your savings plan is.

It was worth a lot more than it is today, due to inflation.

The euro is worth more right now because of a combination of the recession and general inflation.

1908 cents. Nope, It is all about the "s" 1,908 cents will never be more than 2,007 cents. If we were talking about the years (which is what the question is trying to get you to think) then yes the answer above would be right.

Just about what is was worth in 1966, more than likely, without any adjustment for inflation.

As inflation rises, the cost of items increases because the currency is not worth as much as it was before inflation. When prices rise, economic choices available to people become more limited.

Most are worth five cents. Five cents in 1963 was, of course, worth much more than it is today after decades of inflation.

A debtor would favour inflation; the debt would be repaid with money which is worth less than when it was borrowed.

Inflation refers to the rate of increase of goods and services in a country Let us say the inflation rate of your country is 10% then whatever was worth $100 last year is worth $110 this year. This is the effect of inflation.

one method is to adjust every figure in the balance sheet on the basis of a price index.

That is how it is supposed to work. The fewer dollars, the more a dollar is worth.

Based on melt value alone, any Lincoln cents minted before 1982 are worth about 2 cents each for their copper content.

If I understand your question correctly, when dealing with inflation, a dollar earned today is worth more than a dollar earned at any time in the future. This has to do with the concept of the present value of money. Because inflation devalues the dollar over time, a dollar earned today is worth more than say, a dollar earned five years from now.

Consumers want more and more goods and services - APEX

Of course it does. Inflation is the devaluing of money over time. It is always displayed as a percentage. For instance, inflation (usually measured as the Consumer Price Index) one year might be 3%. That means that a dollar in the current year would be worth $1.03 the year before. The saying is kind of misleading though. Inflation usually happens so slowly that a single dollar will not be actually worth less after a single day. Take the rate of inflation for the US since 1968, 519%. Divide that by the number of years since 1968 (40), it comes to 12.975%. Divide that by 365... it comes to .03%. So a dollar tomorrow is only worth .03% more than a dollar today if you apply the 40-year historical average (it is actually different because inflation right now is not 12.975%). While inflation makes one dollar today worth more than a dollar tomorrow, it (inflation) is not the only reason for that. Even if inflation is 0%, a dollar today is still worth more than a dollar tomorrow, for a couple of reasons like 1. if you can buy something today, you can enjoy it (one day) more than if you had bought it the next day 2. by investing a dollar today, you can earn interest, increasing the value of the dollar (in the US, the Fed does manage money supply and interest rates, so there will be some correlation between changes in inflation and changes in interest rates) 3. Perhaps, we will not be able to enjoy the worth of the dollar tomorrow.

Inflation will reduce purchasing power of a future dollar.

High inflation makes currency weak because it means that the currency is worth less. This can be seen in WW2 Russia and Germany where it was more cost effective to burn the excess money the people had instead of trying to buy firewood. High inflation means that things cost more while money is worth less. A loaf of bread may go up in price to $10 instead of $2, meaning it takes more of the money to buy the same product.

This is called inflation or more precisely "price inflation".

That balloon won't take much more inflation!
