Economists assert that every dollar you spend actually amplifies itself in a fiscal ripple as it is turn spent by another person and another and another. Before long that single dollar has been used hundreds of times, yielding massive economic growth & bettering all our lives. But the economy is so large relative to your puny, knavish input, that even if your dollar turns into a thousand, it gets divided by hundreds of millions of people. In a smaller economy however, the economy of poets say, a few bucks and its subsequent multiplier effect can go quite a long way. Within a year, your purchase of the Lungfull! will repay you perhaps enough to make up for the deleterious effects of having actually been exposed to the magazine in the first place.

It's a myth that you will get your money back after you buy a book or magazine when the editor/author uses those same bucks to buy your book or go to your reading. Poets are generally too miserly & disorganized to count on it. With Lungfull! however, we guarantee you will pull in the ducats through our strategic economic positioning.

Here's how it will play out for you over the next year.
