firstly, that's not what inflation
means. and secondly, you can't compare rating systems like that
. otb (whatever your national organization happens to be) is apples, rhp (or ANY other rating) is oranges compared to that. 1800 apple-rating does not equal
1800 orange-rating, and there's no possible way
to find out an exchange rate from apples to oranges.
and thirdly, you can't compare high jump to pole vault.
