Good Article on Value of the Arts

Here is an interesting article on the value of the arts. I think the author misunderstand the importance of economy -- a strong economy in France will of course provide people with the means and leisure to produce great works of art -- but the rest is quite good. (If I could make a suggestion to Sarkozy on how to help out in the area of culture, may I recommend his getting rid of the Language Commission, which decides what words are properly French, as it is doing nothing more than stifling the French language and thus preventing French literature from being what it once was.)
