Pretty shitty attempt at economics, if you ask me.
:agreed:

The best of it is, he doesn't actually really state his thesis, that ticket prices ARE going up because of piracy:

So, is piracy responsible for higher ticket prices? Like most things in this industry, the answer is quite complicated. But the devaluation of recordings is factoring into the current concert crisis more than it would seem.
That's about as ambiguous as you can get. His whole argument is tenuous. I could probably build a stronger case than he does, and I don't necessarily know if I believe him.

The other problem with this op-ed is the complete lack of facts and numbers to back up his claim. It's all opinion, nothing more.
It's not even opinion - the guy never states it as anything clearer than a vague hunch. It'd be one thing if he had the balls to state his thesis with some conviction, but he doesn't even go that far.
