Art sells when life imitates art

When life imitates art, sales peak for that art. This is best demonstrated by the rise in sales for Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged'.

Whenever governments intervene in the market, in short, readers rush to buy Rand’s book. Why? The reason is explained by the name of a recently formed group on Facebook, the world’s biggest social-networking site: “Read the news today? It’s like ‘Atlas Shrugged’ is happening in real life”. The group, and an expanding chorus of fretful bloggers, reckon that life is imitating art.
