The 'Wall Street Journal': Now Worth 38 Cents

oh dear

In 2002, the Wall Street Journal was $189 a month. (That’s because you got it at your desk and your company paid for it.) It’s never been that expensive on the newsstand, at least-though they raised their newsstand price from $1 to $1.50 in July, 2007. It charges $2 a week-or $1, for subscribers-to read the paper on mobile devices. Or, in this new wonderful era, you could get all six issues delivered each week, for $9.99 a month. For, you know, basically 38 cents an issue.
