Art and Money

Today has seen the collapse of investment bank Lehman Brothers and also the sale of a variety of animals in containers full of formaldehyde. The “art” is the work of Damien Hirst who I like. Whilst the hammer was falling and making him more money he was playing snooker with his mates, even if it was in the Groucho Club. Nice.

The news coverage and collapse of Lehman Brothers is annoying me a bit, yes I realise the dire financial repercussions for the worldwide economy.  But are we seriously meant to feel sorry that a bunch of greedy and arrogant investment bankers are now unemployed? I think not.
