You have bought control of one of the top business newspapers in the world. The medium loses audience to the Internet every year. Print media continue to wield influence in politics and related matters of public opinion. This business paper is a Wall and Main Street favorite.

You are so wealthy that the best possible returns on your investment are no bother.
