I don't believe for a second you or anyone does this.
I want to know your real job. Some government nonsense?
Are you kidding me? Read pages 408 - 435 of the Obamacare bill, index 2a table 3 of the Stimulus Act, and the whole last third of the National Defense Autorization Act. Under Obama this is like a 14% of our economy now. (Site specific textile art is just small sliver of that, but when you add up all the government funded art projects it gets big pretty quick). There would be another depression if the government didn't step in. Do you what tuition costs are to get where I got? The whole student loan industry would collapse which would bring down the banking system and all world currencies
You can make fun of my job all you want, but if you have turned on a light switch, bought a hamburger or wore socks in the last month, I played a small part in it.
When they looked at the numbers and ran all the scenarios, they found it much, much more cost effective to give me an old train station and several acres of polyester-sateen and let me do my thing than let the whole US economy collapse. I'm serious. I've seen the study and it's truly frightening. They estimate within 6 months paper money would be worthless and with 9 months people would be eating gold.
