📊 Thank you for your muscular participation in last week's survey: 80.8% of respondents across Axios newsletters said they love the word count.

  • Why we count words: It's a small sign of how much we respect your time. And it keeps our newsletters, including AM, tighter: Writers are accountable, and are more conscious of what they're asking of our demanding, time-starved audience.

🏎️ Today's Smart Brevity count: 1,390 words ... ~ 5 minutes.

  • More surveys are coming soon!
