Will You Pay $14.92 a Year to Read an Internet Rag Like the Junto Blog?

j-moneyHere you go:

After nearly three-and-a-half years, we are preparing to move on to the next level. Beginning Monday, April 4th, The Junto is moving to a paywall system. (That the results for the Final Four #JuntoMM2016 are to be released on Monday is only a coincidence, I assure you.) Over the past few years, our annual operating expenses have come to run into the tens of dollars. Also, our MOOC, JuntoX, never really took off like we’d hoped (or at all). And, with early America getting vaster every day, it is taking an increasing amount of free labor to cover. Also, we’d be lying if we said all the Hamilton talk over the past year hasn’t been bringing out our inner capitalists a little bit.

Therefore, you can get your shiny new Junto subscription for the low, low price of anywhere between $14.92 and $18.12 per year (your choice). Think about it: that’s a maximum of $1.51 per month, or $0.35 per week, or $0.05 per day. So, for the price of one piece of Bazooka Joe (in 1989), you’ll continue to get all the same content you used to get for free. That’s basically a steal!

More details will follow on Monday morning including the P.O. Box address where you can send your check or money order (NB: the e-commerce is going to take another week or so to get up-and-running).

Look, I love early America.  And the Junto writers post some great stuff.   But those folks are not getting a cent of my money!  Especially Hattem, Adelman, Owen, Jones, and Park.

Not a cent I tell you!!!!!
