The overlaid above plot published by The Wall Street Journal
on 3/30/99, page C14, was accompanied by the following text.
Dow, Inflation Adjusted
Suppose you owned one
share of all the stocks in
the Dow Jones Industrial
Average (30 stocks in
recent years). The quoted
level of the average tells
you how much your wealth
has grown on paper, but
not how much it will buy.
For that, try this inflation-
adjusted average.
