    As long as they focus on being the dominant publication in each of their hundreds of small niches (which they can because of their network effects)they will be fine, think FORBES MAGAZINE.

    Wiley's profits, mainly come from niche publication where they are the market dominant player, great margins and a sustainable, expanding competitive advantage which they are now focusing on. the book business will die eventually. They may not grow mcuh, but they can cut cost in the future thanks to the web.
