- Worse yet, cash *loses* 2%-3% a year due to inflation.

Just a little sidetracking. I recently googled to be able to find the value of x dollars from current year-x to value in current year. (Gift given a number of years ago is equivalent to what if given now). It came looking like inflation had been negative.

Crummy calculator ? If so, any links or recommendations ?
