With the groundbreaking Chapwood Index – the real cost of living increase index, Ed Butowsky has exposed the main cause for most Americans falling further behind economically year by year.

Employers use the government-reported Consumer Price Index (CPI) as a benchmark and target returns equivalent to the erroneous CPI. Financial advisors seek returns just north of the CPI. This case of “blind leading the blind” is destroying the financial foundation of our country.

Ed Butowsky’s motivation to create the Chapwood Index came from a desire to help people rescue their finances from fixed-income despair.

Ed hopes that his creation of the Chapwood Index will help millions of Americans understand the need to have a clear vision of how their cost of living will increase annually.
