he's doing this to create this whole "snob appeal" thing around his music. People do this all the time, well, usually it's visual artists that do it, but the same thing applies here. He doesn't need the money, and if he did, he could have easily made waaaaaay more than this, he just wants this to be this super exclusive product that most people won't be able to afford. It probably comes with caviar and a 5000 year old bottle of Champagne.

and Wines I wasn't getting callow at all, just pointing out the ridiculousness of your choice of word phrasing. It's not like he's trying to make up for the money he missed out on by initially giving his music out for free; that ship sailed ages ago.

Well, when you buy stocks of apple before other people, then sell them at a profit, that's okay right? this is the same thing as investing your money. if you have the money to invest up front, and it is legal to do, then there is no reason why this is a problem. I agree that the government should regulate media and entertainment specifically (ie, scalping), but that's pretty much the antithesis of US economics. So since I can (and in this scenario do not like the product), I will. Especially since I know this will be selling for a lot of money soon enough. You can very well do it too.

" yeah, so?"

Wasn't saying that as justification, just saying.

"And it also prevents some people getting it in the first place. There's no net benefit. "

I don't see a problem with it, as long as you aren't raping the person buying it. If you sell it for a small profit, say you sell a $20 record for $35, I don't see the issue with that. Ultimately, the buyer quite clearly wanted it badly enough to pay the extra bit. Now if you're selling that record for $100 because lol so rare, that's different. But at the end of the day, if the buyer wants it badly enough, he'll pay the extra money. Might as well make some cash off it.

right?

Thing is you're actually taking a risk here. Your profit would be your reward for taking a gamble,
predicting a rise in demand/price and it paying off.

Here, the high demand is inevitable. It's been designed for that. You're just pocketing money as a
middle man who has no purpose being there.

my guess is that, being the douche that he is, abel will personally have members from his entourage purchase a majority of the records to resell for personal gain.

also - the reason they want it to be a collector's item is for popularity, mystique, and the highest profit ratio they likely calculated for what amount of money they wanted to put into it. $200 per unit at qty 500 is probably close to the amount they could even sell at that price. i think it would be tough to sell out immediately for even qty 1000 at that pricing. higher profit margins on lesser amounts of work = most favorable scenario

it's a release by xo primarily, so i would think he is getting the majority of the profit. and of course some of his production crew proportionally (im sure they covered themselves after finding about rose). it's probably a decision between him and some of his "advisors" aka his buddies in xo.

it may be a little too far, but it's not far-fetched for how much of a scumbag this guy has proven himself to be. only buying 10 of these will fetch you a minimum 200% profit within a month or two, potentially more.
