Why are artists poor?

Concerning the issue of graphic designers/illustrators/specialfx-ers/fine artists not being paid enough or sometimes not being paid at all.

I found a book called "why are artists poor?" by a fine artist and economist.
It mainly discusses what's going on in the fine art ecomony, but I think the same sentiment applies to anyone doing a creative profession.


I don't really know how to take this, but it would seem that it's got as much to do with too many people trying to become artists as it does the wacky idea that artists don't need or want money for their work.

Does this fit under ethics....?
