The Naked Capitalism community has spoken loudly and clearly. You’ve said you want this site to have more in-depth coverage and more impact. You’ve provided tangible backing for your desire to have us demystify finance, call out chicanery in high places, parse propaganda, to become more effective in our activism, and in our small way, help promote the creation of a more just society.
We set an initial target of 1100 donors for our fundraiser. You met that last weekend. We set a new target of 1250. You broke that last week. We set a new target of 1400, which you beat mid this week. We then raised our target to 1600, which you broke this morning.
We are now at 1699, the most we’ve ever gotten, and closing on our new donor target of 1750!.
And we are at $27,950, close to our target of $35,000 for original reporting!
Can you push us over the top? Ever little bit will help, whether it’s $5 or $27, or $50, or $5,000.

We’ve gotten SO many messages that it will take me some time to read through them all and reply properly. I wanted to share a few:
As PlutoniumKun said
NC is the first and last site I log into every day, its absolutely essential reading for me and has been fundamental to opening my eyes to what has been going on in the world. Its worth every cent of what I can afford to contribute.
And Aksel Edgar-Lund
I discovered NC a while back by way of Hubert Horans excellent series on Uber. I work as a journalist in a small town where I live in Norway. Even here, in our socialist country, the divide between the rich and the poor is increasing, to the detriment of society as a whole.
Through NC I’ve also discovered Counterpunch and Truthout, of which I am now a regular reader. I find NC and the aforementioned sources provide a much more balanced view than much of mainstream American media. For that I am grateful and optimistic. I much appreciate the depth of knowledge demonstrated by the commentariat. I just donated, this is my first comment. Keep up the good work!
So, last chance. Be one of the 50 or so we need to push this effort over the top.
