Reach our readers

by advertising in Dollars & Sense


Dollars & Sense is a unique publication, tackling economic issues in plain English for readers with a commitment to social and economic justice.

Over 3,000 activists, organizers, students, professors, journalists and others subscribe to the magazine. We estimate a per-issue readership of over 7,000.

We offer advertisers access to a targeted market of opinion shapers deeply concerned with economic issues, who use the information they get from us to form their opinions, and to speak, write, and act on their convictions in their communities.

Our readers buy books and magazines, attend professional conferences, join and support activist organizations and activities, and travel widely.

Dollars & Sense is published six times a year in Boston, Mass., by the non-profit Economic Affairs Bureau.

How to submit your ad

Ad space reservations should be submitted two months in advance of publication. All ads must be prepaid. For more information, call Linda Pinkow at 617-447-2177, or .

For black and white ads, you may submit a color version of your ad in addition to the black and white version. The color ad will be used in the digital issue of Dollars & Sense, which has a growing number of subscribers.

If possible, display ads should be submitted as PDF files. Quark Xpress and Pagemaker can export directly to PDF; with other programs you may have to create a Postscript file and distill it. If you don't have Acrobat Distiller, you can submit your file in PS (Postscript) or EPS format. In either case, please make sure that all fonts are embedded and that all graphics are high resolution—at least 600 dpi for line art, 200 dpi for grayscale. You can check font embedding in Acrobat Reader (under Document info in the File menu). To check graphics, print out the PDF file—graphics should not look fuzzy, jagged, or pixelated.
