The Boston Globe has an article by Laurence Arnold, Bloomberg News, headlined Study: Arts are an economic asset.
Quote:
Nonprofit arts groups, including museums, orchestras, theaters and dance companies, contributed $166.2 billion and 5.7 million jobs to the US economy in 2005, according to an advocacy group urging more funding for the arts.

The numbers undercut a common belief that spending on arts and culture comes at the expense of economic development, said Randy Cohen , vice president of policy and research at Americans for the Arts, which released the report yesterday.
