Of course not. They're too busy making vanity purchases. These prices have nothing to do with value and everything to do with being in first place on Boardwalk or Park Place. This is how the rich suck the value out of your work, and put it someplace where it can never benefit you. And this is what our current tax policy promotes.
Real wealth never trickles down. It percolates up, when the wealthy are forced to make their money by hiring the rest of us to earn it for ourselves and them. We, the people, are the real wealth-creators. Someday, I hope we wake up and act on that fact to make the world better for everyone. Including making the price of antiques affordable.
