The "adjusted for inflation" is not the same as "decline in dollar" which shows a more severe decline in the DOW. "Decline in dollar" charts are harder to find. If I find one I will post.

Since the DOW is indexed by the dollar you can also just look at any of the various charts of the value of the dollar (there are many controversial versions of the calculations) to get an idea of the dynamics. Here is one:

It is a conservative estimate that the $ has lost 50-60% of its value since 2001-2002 which means a DOW of 14,000 in 2001 would need to be 20,000+ now to have the same value...
