Subject: Inflation calculators
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

There are several inflation calculators on the web. My favorite is "The
Inflation Calculator," which is very simple, clean and quick. You enter an
amount of money, a start year and and end year (both
1800-1998). Say, for instance, 0.25, 1940, 1998 ( weren't paperbacks a
quarter back in 1940?) The result tells you that the equivalent amount of
$0.25 in 1940 dollars would be $2.87 in 1998 dollars
(so you can see that paperbacks have become quite expensive, relative to
other things). In case you put the years in in the wrong order, the answer
page also points out that $0.25 in 1998 dollars
would be $0.02 in 1940 dollars.

Hi Mom,

It might be too late, but I came across this and thought I'd pass it along.

I think it's a little hard for me here, working part time and trying to
figure out what to do with the rest of my time. I"m kind of figuring
commuting on the weekends until I move into my apartment which promises to
much more comfortable that where I'm staying now. Complain, complain,
complain. There are, however, two Woodman's here in Madison. I think I'm
going there later today.
