I hate this idea. The Wall Street Journal is going to change the width of the paper from 15 inches to 12 inches. Personally, I like the paper just the way it is. They are apparently making the change so that they can contract out some of their printing needs and thereby save $18 million a year. Hmmm… I wonder if they will reduce their subscription cost? Right now I pay $215 per year for the print edition. I could save money by simply subscribing to the online edition (which includes Barron’s) but I like paper.
So, if there’s anyone from the Wall Street Journal reading this: please leave the paper alone!
