Right, but while we've always had the same economic system in place, I feel it's important to mention how the wealth distribution has changed.

One thing they could do to reduce the cost of tickets would be to stop utilizing 3rd parties for distribution... Ticket Master adds roughly 25% to the cost of the cheapest ticket. It's not like they don't have the capacity to do so. Although I don't exactly know the details of the entire operation so maybe I'm not in the best position to comment.
