Newspaper Economics

Silicon Alley has calculated that the New York Times spends about twice as much printing and delivering a physical newspaper than it would cost to send each subscriber a free Kindle.


Are we trying to say the the New York Times should force all its print subscribers onto the Kindle or else? No. That would kill ad revenues and also, not everyone loves the Kindle.

What we're trying to say is that as a technology for delivering the news, newsprint isn't just expensive and inefficient; it's laughably so.
