    US Dollar Bear Intact
  • US Dollar Bear Intact Adam Hamilton August 27, 2004 3070 Words One of the most fascinating enigmas of the markets this summer has been the erratic behavior of the mighty US dollar.

  • . What the bonds and other securities that are sold into the market really do.
  • . That's the system that Congress mandated in the 1930s for the municipal market, and that's the system that it reaffirmed in the 1970s for the municipal investor.

    VentureBlog: Rock Concerts Are A Marketing Device
  • | Rock Concerts Are A Marketing Device By on September 4, 2003 04:18 AM | Categories: According to an in the New York Times this past weekend, later this year Ticketmaster will begin auctioning off the best available seats for concerts that it is ticketing.
  • . According to John Pleasants, Ticketmaster's president and CEO, the fact that there is a thriving secondary ticket market suggests that concert tickets are unpriced today.
  • . Pleasants calls primary market ticket auctioning the first step in "a new age of the ticket." It is clear that Pleasants has a point about ticket pricing -- tickets to many concerts are unquestionably underpriced.
  • . More recently, eBay and other auction sites (like ) have enabled a broader range of people to benefit from the arbitrage between a ticket's face value and its fair market value.
  • . Ticketmaster's new pricing scheme ignores one important factor -- to my mind, rock concerts are as much about marketing as sales.
  • . Perhaps the idea of the rock concert as marketing vehicle is an outdated concept and fans are willing to accept that tickets will sell for whatever the market will bear (if my recollection serves me correctly, Barbara Streisand was the first one who was willing to truly test the outer limits of market pricing and discovered that the prices for her shows were far more inelastic than anyone would have previously guessed).
