Fortune 500 Issue Page Count: Economy Is Way UP!

Time for the annual check of Fortune magazine's page count for its "Fortune 500" issue.

Not since 2005 has this issue had so many pages (meaning so much advertising and so many advertorial sections). The economy is clearly much improved, judging by the heft of this annual issue. Will the 2015 issue break the 400-page barrier?

2014: 390
2013: 352
2012: 312
2011: 316
2010: 308
2009: 276
2008: 356
2007: 386
2006: 384
2005: 410
2004: 478
2003: 410
2002: 402
2001: 474
2000: 630 - Peak of dot-com boom!
1999: 510
1998: 506

And for the record, the top 5 in the Fortune 500 listing are: (1) Walmart, (2) Exxon Mobile, (3) Chevron, (4) Berkshire Hathaway, (5) Apple.
