Inflation rate over 50 years

50 years ago, the Reader's Digest magazine cost $1. Now, it cost $9.50.

What is the inflation rate over the past 50 years, for this magazine?

My financial calculator showed 4.6% per annum.

Dear Mr. Tan, do you think the CPI inflation's basket isn't representative of the average Singaporean's purchasing habit?
