Not sure why subby picked contradictory statements. When the bubble pops, hundreds of people who "made a living" as artists will be unemployed. Somebody should probably think of them because I'm sure they're loud mouth ultra liberals and they'll go occupy something and cry.

Well after they spend $34 million on a painting no one will care about in 10 years, how do you expect them to give us those sweet sweet (minimum wage, no benefits) jobs if we make them pay taxes too?

Papa John's pizza might even have to go up 12 cents to cover our ingratitude.

But the rich just hide all that money in off shore accounts and in their mattresses. How dare they spend money and generate taxable activity! We must raise taxes on art to discourage this behavior!!
