FT - its expensive here and cheap in USA

Sitting at dinner last night I was told by a friend that it is considerably cheaper to subscribe to the FT in the US than it is here in the UK. I thought that cannot be right so I woke up this morning went online and checked.....

Well my friend was right. Take a look at this

In the US its $348 for 52 weeks delivered to your door

In the UK its £468! (GB pounds) for 312 issues saving 41% on cover price

Go figure!

Another example (if we needed another) of the newspaper industry punishing (and not rewarding) loyalty.
