WTF we've had 60% inflation since 1990?

Home Alone took in ~280m in 1990, worth ~445m nowadays?


In movie ticket prices? Yeah we probably have.

Compound growth is a bastard.

I thought this as well, but according to the Inflation Calculator at the top of the linked page, that’s overall US Consumer Price Index change.

Puts the 20% increase in games (US $50 to $60) over the last 15-20 years in perspective.

Yup. We usually get 2-4% a year.

Plunging value of the dollar, ftw!
