My cousin just paid $380 to go to their On the run concert. The cheapest seats were like $250. She definetly exploiting her fans.
This reminds me of a bit I saw on the inherited wealth issue that will be taking over America in the coming generations as a result of the new oligarchy
Everyone knows that wealth is being accumulated at the top of the pyramid. This power in the hands of a few is by definiton an oligarchy. But on the point of inheritied wealth, is that wealth (or large amount of money controlled by one family, or group), tends to grow faster than the economy. So, not only are the top uber rich, but their richiness is going to get even richer over time (relative to the basic economy). So their power and influence is growing exponentially.
At the same time, the middle class is eroding and the rest of the land is becoming poor.
Good thinking eh?
So, don't worry Blue Ivy, daddy will buy you that diamond studded dildo too.
