Important Update from Econ Weekly
I regret having to write this but sadly, I’ll be ending publication of Econ Weekly after the next issue is published this weekend. Ultimately, EW didn’t generate as much interest as I hoped. In addition, I was unable to find a good partner with digital marketing skills to help me promote it. I’ve decided to allocate more time to my Railroad Weekly newsletter, while also returning to my earlier profession of writing about the airline industry.
To paid subscribers of Econ Weekly on an annual plan: First of all, I greatly thank you for your support and readership. I hope you enjoyed reading the newsletter as much as I enjoyed writing it. Be assured that I’ve already issued refunds for the remainder of your annual subscriptions. Please check your credit card statements in the next week or two and be sure to inform me if you don’t see the refund. Auto-renew for monthly subscribers has been deactivated.
Thanks also to non-subscribers who’ve taken the time to trial Econ Weekly. I hope I was able to provide some useful and interesting insights into the U.S. economy during the past year and a half. I certainly learned a ton while writing it, and especially enjoyed researching the Places section, where I profiled a different local economy each week. It was great talking to economic developers and other local leaders to learn about all the amazing things going on across the U.S.
I will leave the Econ Weekly site active on Substack if anyone wishes to access old issues and podcast episodes. I may periodically add new content to the site as well. A special thanks to Andrew Young who graciously agreed to do the weekly podcast with me. We haven’t decided yet whether we’ll keep going with that but there will be at least one more episode so stay tuned!
Thanks again to everyone and email me with any questions or issues with refunds. I always love to chat about the economy (and railroads and airlines) so don’t hesitate to reach out at email@example.com. Also be in touch if you’ve got digital marketing skills (or a railroad background) and are looking for work! -Jay
