    If you check the national statistics, I think you'll find that due to an economic phenomenon known as the 'multiplier effect' every dollar spent by the government on the arts returns $1.36 within 12 months. This is because of economic spinnoffs.

    I do agree that corruption is a problem and who decides who gets funding should certainly be given an overhaul... but from the reading I've done even with corruption the govnt gets a huge return from the arts which goes back into the public fund.

    We can enrich our lives without government digging into our pockets. Too much corruption.
