When Money published its first issue, an energy crisis was looming, HBO sent out its first transmissions, and “electronic mail” was just getting started.

That was in 1972 — 50 years ago.

Today, Money has transformed from a monthly print magazine to a 24/7 one-stop shop for all the personal finance news and information you need to make smart spending and saving decisions.

To celebrate our five-decade history, we’re rolling out a bunch of exciting things this year, including special issues and packages, website Easter eggs, and — to kick it all off — a brand-new newsletter called Money Classic.

Money Classic will give you an exclusive look at how we covered the biggest personal finance stories over the years. From the invention of far-out investment vehicles like the “401(k)” to the futuristic predictions we made about Y2K and the year 2000, Money Classic is a fun and informative window into how we saw the world — and helped readers like you make sense of it.

Sign up below — and as a taste of things to come, check out some of our choice selections that will be featured in Money Classic.
