Let’s pause for a little more perspective.
China, India and Japan (as of 2005) were the largest markets for newspapers in the world. In a year that saw a decrease in many global markets (U.S. And Germany for instance), the Asian markets actually improved by about 4.1% (in 2004).
Print media is a global phenomenon and the only way to really understand it is to look at it from a global perspective. The newspaper index has listings from hundreds of countries, with links to many of their national newspapers. Take a look inside and see how different countries arrange their news.
