Everything's a dollar, including BusinessWeek


Buying distressed print publications is getting to be as simple as purchasing singles at the iTunes store. Whatever you want, chances are it can be had for a single, simple price: one American dollar.

That's how much OpenGate Capital paid when it boughtTV Guide from Macrovision last year. It's how much some analysts think The New York Times Co. will fetch for the Boston Globe.

Paid Content and the Financial Timesagree: This 80-year-old business title with a circulation of 900,000 can be yours for a buck.
