Included are analyses of businesses ranging from private investigator to drug dealers to Macy’s.  And, yes, “A Pizza Place” is included, as well.  Actual businesses are used, and the graphics help illustrate costs and revenue.  Be sure to check it out: It might make you think twice before you complain about the costs of living.
