There are several ways to calculate the time value of money. Depending on the data available, results can be obtained by using the compound interest formula or the Consumer Price Index (CPI) formula.
Given that money changes with time as a result of an inflation rate that acts as a compound interest, the following formula can be used: FV = PV (1 + i)n, where:
In this case, the future value represents the final amount obtained after applying the inflation rate to our initial value. In other words, it indicates how much are kr100 worth today. There are 61 years between 1959 and 2020 and the average inflation rate has been 15.9463%. Therefore, we can resolve the formula like this:
FV = PV (1 + i)n = kr100 * (1 + 0.16)61 = kr294,757.69
When the CPI for both start and end years is known, the following formula can be used:
In this case, the CPI in 1959 was 0.04 and the CPI today is 110.69. Therefore,
