Not really, Photoshop is more than that.
It's ironic though, the price is 50 euros and they want to help you save money.

so why do big companies spend a lot of money with economist,when a simple calculator can solve all they problems!

You're right! If only the millions of people that have used Quicken, Money, and YNAB through the years had only thought of buying a calculator! Wow! Genius!

Also I don't think a calculator comes with multiple free online budgeting classes complete with question and answer time...

You gotta spend money to save money.

And the program will tell you that you spend too much on steam games in the first place!

Or that you've been able to put more aside to spend on games... you know, either way :)

I don't mean to insult your program, for the record, I'm just saying as someone who works in finances that purchases like this tend to dig a deeper hole when you're struggling with money.
No insult taken.

We definitely don't want to just take people's money and run though. Which is why we push our method[www.youneedabudget.com] so hard. Without that, you are just buying a fancied up spreadsheet (well, that's selling it a little short - the cloud sync algorithm beats pretty much anything you can do in Excel alone, but you can definitely replicate the basic functionality in Excel with a day or two of mucking around).

We also offer free live classes[www.youneedabudget.com] to help people (I think one of the team said we've had 8,000 people attend these since July), and have our forum[forum.youneedabudget.com] full of helpful people, and a huge amount of other resources[www.youneedabudget.com].

We want to see people succeed because it's awesome to come to work and have an email sitting in your queue saying that you helped prevent someone's house from being foreclosed. Or that they were able to pay for a medical bill that otherwise would have sunk them. Or saved their marriage. You know, little things like that make a job a bit more than just a job :)
