Professional Birthday Greeting Software that taps into the power of Microsoft?s widely used Office applications, News of the Past Professional provides new graphing features that illustrate the always popular cost-of-living data category: a then-versus-now comparison for such items as a gallon of gas, a loaf of bread, a new auto, a new house, average income, Dow Jones, and wages. Displaying a graph beginning at the year 1900 and ending with the current year, the program places a marker on the recipient?s day of birth or whatever special date you have chosen. This display shows where you, the individual, enter the big picture in terms of inflation. This inflation indicator is just one of many new features the Professional version has to offer. It?s an ideal tool for investors, stockbrokers, banks, insurance, and other financial services companies. Using the graphing feature, you can also create a custom graph tailored to your business. All you need to do is provide one statistic per year, and then set the colors and headings, and you have a graph designed to illustrate your industry-specific goal. For example, a retirement planner could graph the cost of health-care insurance to drive home the central question: ?At this rate of inflation, will you have enough when you retire??
