Inflation Adjuster

leave a comment »

The United States’ Bureau of Labor Statistics has a quick and easy online inflation calculator to adjust financial numbers you find here into today’s dollars.

For example, in our profile of the North American Soccer League’s New England Tea Men, we reported that the franchise opened for business in 1978 with a $600,000 player payroll and a $1.5 million operating budget.   A reader who wished to compare those figures with, say, the reported payroll of a 2011 Major League Soccer club can use the calculator to adjust the historic numbers into their 2011 equivalents:  a $2.036 million payroll within a $5.1 million operating budget.
