Le 1% C'est Moi by Andrea Fraser

 “...a one percentage point increase in the share of total income earned by the top 0.1 percent triggers an increase in art prices of about 14 percent... It is indeed the money of the wealthy that drives art prices. This implies that we can expect art booms whenever income inequality rises quickly. This seems exactly what we witnessed during the last period of strong art price appreciation, 2004 - 2007." - “Art and Money", in: Yale School of Management Working Paper, No. 09–26 , Yale School of Management, April 28 , 2010 .
