My Wall Street Journal subscription is one of the luxuries of life that I get the most pleasure out of.
If you don't subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, it's easy to think of the paper as being mostly about the stock market – investment advice, venture capital, banking news, private equity, exchange rates – I could go one with the list of relatively stale topics.
There's a reason the WSJ has the largest circulation of any newspaper in the US. The reason is good journalism. They don't just cover the financial industry. The cover politics, government policy, and international affairs. With an eye toward finance, of course.
Thirty-three Pulitzer prizes and some of the best available coverage of China's economy: that's why the WSJ is such a popular newspaper. For my money, the paper provides me a lot of relaxation and entertainment. I read it to unwind, not to help my business (though it does that).
And after I retire, I'll keep reading it….
