Alan Krueger a former chairman of the president's Council of Economic Advisers uses the music industry from superstar artists to music executives from managers to promoters as a way in to explain key principles of economics and the forces shaping our economic livesThe music industry is a leading indicator of today's economy; it is among the first to be disrupted by the latest wave of technology and examining the ins and outs of how musicians create and sell new songs and plan concert tours offers valuable lessons for what is in store for businesses and employees in other industries that ar. No one else could have written a book with this range Rockonomics draws on economic theory standard government surveys proprietary administrative data a uniue survey fielded by the author and interviews with a range of people in the music industry It covers just about every aspect of the music industry The book focuses on the economics of the music industry including a number of familiar themes like how streaming revenue is rising but recorded music primarily drives touring revenue how live ticket prices are set how merchandise is marketed how streaming is changing the makeup of songs and Relatively little of this was revelatory as someone who only casually follows these issues I knew most of it but all of it was definitive and authoritative A secondary purpose of the book and it is secondary notwithstanding the subtitle is to use the music industry to illustrate a number of economic concepts like superstars and ineuality the behavioral economics that leads stars to underprice their tickets for fear of sending the wrong signal the economics of incomplete contracts the endogenaity of preferences and even simple demand curves but in advertising revenueIt is hard not to linger over the references in the book to artists that died prematurely including some sympathetic references to them dying at their own hands This plus the broad range of Rockonomics makes it all the harder to accept the fact that Alan Krueger will not write another book

    “Rockonomics” is a somewhat frustrating read a potentially excellent idea that isn’t executed as adeptly as it could be and ultimately falls a little flat It might sound strange to say this about a book by a Princeton economics professor on the financial underpinnings of the music industry but it’s major failing is that it focuses too much on the inner machinations of the music business at the expens
