From my days of teaching business and economics I recall that economics is the study of "unlimited demands on limited resources."Well, the imposition of a fee to remain a member of the Motley Fool boards, with no increase in my avalible resources, I had to make a pure economic decision. Pay a fee to the Fool and continue to participate in an activity that finds me lurking (99.9%) posting (.1%) of the time for an average of one hour per day, or not pay the fee and continute to subscribe to one of several other business and market print publications that I have subscribed to for many years. It forced me to take a good hard look at the value received from these print publications.The study took about a "New York minute". One publication I have subscribed to for over ten years is no longer in my budget. I realized that I was spending just a few minutes looking at each issue, and then filing it away for "future reference." Annual cost of this publication, about $50.00. Drop subsciption Save $50.00. One year of the Fool at charter rate $15.00. Net savings per year $35.00. Total savings over the two years, $70.00!...Net increase to investable funds over the two years $70.00.A no brainer!Selena, thanks for the tech help.Little GiantA registered Fool since Dec 1997
