Re: [BKARTS] Art is like Bonds



What a great idea. It steps out of the polar description of art/money.
Perhaps this points to a way to transcend my gloomy assessment of art in its
relation to the values of free market feeding frenzies.

Basically I came to the conclusion that art is not possible in a market
economy, only artistic commodities.

This is true in fundamental free market economies which do not permit
systems of valuation to survive other than value that equates to money.

Probably there is some happy middle ground possible.

Your Love Me Tender turns the tables.
