Abstract : A model is developed for the allocation of a known fixed-amount of money to various financial accounts. Market baskets were defined for each of the accounts and model were developed to calculate estimated inflation rates for each account. These inflation rates were then used as inputs into the allocation model. The proposed allocation model distributed the funds to the accounts in a manner such that each account received an equal percentage of its cost of living increase. (Author)
