New York Magazine, April 2009. A NYTimes article looks at the economics of magazines: "A New York Times analysis of circulation data for the 50 largest and most expensive magazines showed that in the last four years, as overall prices rose 14 percent, subscription prices dropped an average of 9 percent."

The Economist and others are staying or raising their prices. It is my contention that readers are willing to pay… for good content. The magazines can go deeper and timeliness is less important than analysis.
