As from today, the FT (the leading printed matter financial news organ) will cost 30% more than it did last week. The FT will now be on sale at news stands at a hefty £1.30 a copy.
This is approximately double the price of most of its quality rivals in the UK quality press. The price hike is viewed by some to be a "bold initiative", considering that it was already the most expensive paper in the newsagents.
Those of you who don't want to pay for the FT, may find this site (www.congoo.com) to be helpful; it claims that it can give you free access to the FT.
