    You guys might become economists yet. Nice analysis of music royalties, with one problem; traditional record labels do a lot for their mmoney: they promote, they provide top-flight rewcording venues/equipment/people, etc. In additiom, they pay out advances which are never recouped on the vast majority of bands thast don’t go anywhere — so they take risks for which their share of revenues for successful artists is the reward. Bands like Radiohead can go out on their own when they’re discovered and have fukfikked thei contract obligations, but getting them to that point is what record companies do. No one has to sign with a label — the fact that they almost always do given the chance is what we economists call a revealed preference argument.

    Apologies for the typos… I tried to write that comment on my phone. Bad idea.

    J – I agree completely. Most of the money they spend is “wasted” in that they never see a return. Occasionally, they hit someone big and make it big and everyone cries foul.

    It’s the same in the publishing world as established authors are starting to self publish to make more money. It is misleading to some of the new authors to think they can make the same money without having first spent time at a publishing house.
