Thanks to the generosity of many loyal readers, we’re within striking distance of our targets. We’re at 1754 donors, closing in on our new goal of 1800. And at $36,610, we are also nearing our final fundraiser target of $45,000 for original reporting.
Be one of the people that makes 2020 the first year that the fundraiser had surpassed both its financial and donor goals! Remember, every dollar (or pound or Euro or Australian or New Zealand dollar) you give now goes to original reporting. The fundraiser ends tomorrow night at midnight PDT.
And if you need a reminder of the sort of unique coverage your funding makes possible, Lambert is DJing the Vice Presidential debate open thread on Wednesday, so ready your drinking games and fitting YouTube clips.
Will you help make this fundraiser an even bigger success?
Some of you who planned to give may have been busy with family, travel, work demands. And some like deadlines! So please take a couple of minutes to visit our fundraiser page to chip in for another year of razor-sharp analysis, one-stop news recaps twice a day, lively and insightful discussions, occasional snark and your daily dose of cute animal pictures.
We’ve deeply appreciated not only the many donations we’ve gotten, but also the kind notes from readers. As Lyle wrote,
Just made my donation! A few years overdue and with many thanks.
NC started literally months after I graduated college and by some miracle, back when blogs were still a thing, I found it and have read daily ever since. Thanks for almost 15 years of balancing out my econ-major introduction to neoliberal groupthink. Maybe I do still work in real estate, but never pass up an opportunity to explain how “taxes don’t fund that” or, on a bad day pondering, “why are we even doing this?”
It’s obvious and laudable how hard you all work and the standard to which you hold yourselves. Truly hope everyone can muster the energy to keep it up for many more years!
Well, I donated today. I’m a very occasional commenter and long time lurker (I think, 12yrs?). Thank you Yves, Lambert, and the rest of the team. NC has been a truly priceless resource, a fountain of information, and an excellent teacher. The morning always begins with your Links, the afternoon coffee accompanies Water Cooler. I hope to continue lurking for many years to come.
And Thom R:
I’ve just sent $100 via paypal, in addition to my regular monthly subscription payment. I’m happy to take advantage of Harry Shearer’s generosity, and to help NC latch on to some of that sweet Nicecorp cash.
Back when I was a struggling artist and was conflicted about a big sale to a defense industry executive, the gallery director pulled me into her office/closet and explained “Look, it’s ALL dirty money. Our job is to try to launder it. Pay attention to what you spend it on and you’ll be doing society a favor”.
That was my introduction to thinking about economics, and though I’m still puzzled every day I thank you and your colleagues and the uniquely readable comments from the peanut gallery for leading the battle to quell my puzzlement.
These are high expectations for all of us at Naked Capitalism, and we will devote ourselves to living up to them.

Give now to Naked Capitalism. Whatever you can provide, whether $5 or $50 or $5,000, it helps us all keep this community vibrant. This isn’t just a donation.
