    • "How much would $130,000 in 1992 be worth today?"

    💲241,171•77 of 2020's dollars, according to: https://www.in2013dollars.com/us/inflation/1992?am... - a calculator SURE to have been developed by a Yank in 2013. If you click its

       current inflation rate

    label you will see a graph and some charts that might surprise or please you.

    Of course, the calculation DOES depend on which NATION's currency you are talking about (you didn't TELL us!) and how poorly or well that nation's currency has traded during those 28 years. Also on how well the coins or notes have been protected, and/or whether they have been just figures in an interest-bearing account during those 28 years!

    I gather that you don't yet realise how MANY nations currently use their OWN 💲, let alone how many nations used to have a 💲 but have changed their currency to some other word (often in their nation's language, not in English). Your word "dollar" derives from the German "thaler". a coin first known as the Joachimsthaler & originally minted in Jáchymov way back in 1517 AD.

    Using: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dollar as my main research tool, I found these 💲s still in use:

    AUD, BBD, BND, BSD, BZD, CAD, FJD, GYD, HKD, JMD, KID, KYD, LRD, NAD, NZD, SBD, SGD, SRD, USD, TTD, TVD, TWD, XCD.

    I'd rather my nation HADN'T chosen "dollar" for its currency unit - but no doubt that period's politicians foolishly thought that every nation's 💲 would forever be worth the same as every other nation's 💲, so DIDN'T choose a name based on the te reo Māori language of the Polynesians who first discovered this land and migrated here circa 1335±15 AD. (At the time our politicians were dcciding, I was kept busy teaching my pupils the decimal measurements so that they could help their £-s-d AND miles-yards-feet-inches AND tons-cwt-stones-lbs-ounces parents learn them.)

    I don't know how long you've been in Y!A, but I point out that we answerers expect you to reward the best attempt by us - and that so far I think only two persons have given you a totally wrong answer or a lazy NON-answer. So the longer you delay, the HARDER it is going to be to decide which is the BEST (despite Verizon > Oath foolishly changing the button's label to "Favourite Answer") answer.

    I assume you realise that each time you award a Best/Favourite Answer you are refunded 3 of the 5 points it "costs" you to ASK the question, but reminders never hurt.
