We hate spam, and we respect your privacy



What is spam?


Spam is unsolicited junk email, sent out in bulk to many recipients at a time and clogging up your inbox. Things that you never asked to receive and are at best useless and uninteresting, at worst downright illegal.


We will never, ever send you such emails, and we will never, ever sell or communicate your email address to spammers.


When you agree to receive blog updates from us, you’ll get just that: blog updates from us.


We work with our email distribution platform, Get Response, to fight spam, and comply with their anti-spam policy.


What will you send me?


The Positive Economist blog is updated regularly: you will receive the new articles in your email inbox when they are published on the blog.


Please make sure that is in your white list of safe senders.


What if I don’t want to receive your emails anymore?


You can just unsubscribe, and we’ll stop sending you email.


If at any time you decide that you do not want to receive our emails anymore, just open our latest email and scroll down to the bottom: you will see a link to unsubscribe. Just click this link and we will erase your address from our readers’ list. We will stop sending emails as soon as you unsubscribe.
