Someone who has 8.7-billion?

Is that buying property beside the river? I am not sure if that is a good idea to do so, rivers often flood, it is not sensible to build a property on a floodplain.

No, the $4.3 million is how much someone paid to own a much larger, framed version of that digitally-manipulated photograph.

Funny thing art ..

I think that a subtle combination of rarity and BS is in play sometimes.

Rarity is a good hedge against things losing value by supply ever being likely to exceed demand. BS creates demand.

It is a combination of those two thing that explains why none but the very best BS'ers in the art world can make the big bucks before they are dead.

Sometimes I wonder if the super rich simply need (to stop them going extinct through boredom?) such nonsense values to be attached to something other than gold.

I can see spending a lot of money on a painting - but a photoshop print?

Can't the artist just hit print one more time? three-thousand more times?
