Art’s Economic Exceptionalism in Classical, Neoclassical and Marxist Economics
Key debates on the economics of art, from the high prices artworks fetch at auction, to the controversies over public subsidy of the arts, the 'cost disease' of artistic production, and neoliberal and post-Marxist theories of art's incorporation into capitalism, are examined in detail.

The chapter documents the dynamics of queer cruising and gay male prostitution in the area fronting the City Hall around QMC during the beginning of the decade and its eventual decline towards the end of the decade due to the rise of Internet.

The paper argues that these spaces should be understood as both a strategy for empowerment and instrument of oppression for queers.
