The latter was said to facilitate, among other things, private fundraising efforts among the patron class who were and are based primarily in the affluent suburbs. I opined that regionalization was the more democratic option but thought that privatization would be the more likely outcome. Should the current plan succeed, the DIA will in effect enjoy the best of both worlds, a regional funding base for operations from the tax revenues of a recently adopted millage while securing control of the museum away from the municipal bureaucracy to which wealthy trustees had ceded jurisdiction after the First World War. In response to the news of the plan initially floated by Judge Rosen, noted artist, critic, and curator Michael Hall , a longtime Detroit-area resident, issued the following statement: * * * * * AND ORR SUCKERPUNCH THE ARTS IN MICHIGAN Michael Hall (Photo courtesy of the artist) In a nifty move right out of the Reagan Revolution playbook, the governor of Michigan and his hand picked bankruptcy fixer finally revealed their plan for monetizing the art collection at the Detroit Institute of Arts. The plan is brilliant in its simplicity and in its political nuance. After months of hinting that the art in the museum was “on the table” for a liquidation that would generate cash to offset Detroit’s many debt obligations, the lords of the bankruptcy relented and “saved” the museum. Their idea basically runs like this: Art is worth money (they got an appraisal to prove it). People who like art have money. Thus, why not present the museum with a bill that would equate to the appraised value of its precious art and let the museum tap its rich friends across America for contributions that would pay the tab and keep the paintings on the Institute’s walls. perfect! How painless! How noble!

Passionate gamers have expressed concerns about Star Wars: The Old Republic and SimCity. Electronic Arts’ strategy of selling downloadable content (DLC) through in-game micro-transactions was also one of the reasons the company received 78% of the votes in the poll. Such errors keep Electronic Arts from realizing its maximum potential. According to our analysis, capturing a 25% market share in the FPS market would have led to a 15% increase in revenues for EA with a potential 10% upside to our price estimate. Our current forecast for EA takes into account the dominance of Activision’s Call of Duty franchise. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was the best selling game of 2012 in the U.S. The game accounted for more than 11% of total video game sales worldwide, with a market share of 20% on the Xbox and Playstation platforms.
Electronic Arts Misses Next Genration Opportunity With Battlefield Botch Up
Born in 1945, Khalili is an Iranian Jew who moved to the United States after his military service, and worked flipping burgers and doing other low-paid jobs before breaking into the world of antiques trading. This was something that his family background had prepared him for. His father had been a dealer in Islamic antiques back in Iran. From small beginnings Khalili built up a collection, now based in London, estimated to be worth billions of dollars. In a 2009 interview with the Sunday Times Khalili recalled his early days as a trader in New York City and how he exploited his skills as a middleman: Those days, because of the rivalry, the shops didnt even talk to each other. There were 20 antique shops and they didnt even look at what each of them had. I would buy five pieces for $10,000, sell three for $25,000, and keep the others for myself. One of the rules of successful collecting is to build up a collection with an identity by focusing on a specific area and era.
