The History of Economics
YADA .. YADA .. YADA

We welcome your response.
Now let's try to figure this out?
All it takes is a little mathematics and trick technology.
In the new age computer world of Fred Astaire and Dirt Devil vacuum cleaners… we can offer a sensational Cast for NBC at much less than $600,000 per show, and we can save NBC a lot of money.
For example… we can give them Jackie Gleason… Red Skelton… Lucille Ball and Danny Thomas who never got $600,000 a show.
Or we can give them Jack Benny… Danny Kaye and Carol Burnett and Sid Ceasar who never got $600,000 a show.
And if we want to give them other options… we can give them Buster Keaton… Harold Lloyd… Fatty Arbuckle and Martha Raye… who never got $600,000 for making a two hour movie, let alone 22 minutes of TV time during which they will only appear 15 minutes of the time.
Are we missing something?
Who do they think they are… Michael Jordan… or Michael Jackson… or Michaelangelo?
I have thumbed back through all the pages of history… right back to Cain and Abel who used to do shows for the neighborhood kids.
Now, the most remuneration they ever got was two goats and an alfalfa bean.
Old vaudevillian comedians worked for food.
If it wasn't for the eggs and tomatoes the audiences used to throw at them… they would hardly ever have enjoyed a good meal.
So "The Seinfelds" have a lot to be thankful for.
NBC could have saved a lot of money putting Arsenio… Pauley… Rhea… and Chevy together as the new Seinfelds… that would have scared the hell out of the Seinfeld hold-outs!
That would have scared the hell out of us too!
However, NBC caved!
Now watch the price of "canned laughter"
rise to the occasion…
P.S. We forgot to mention that the very young friends cast socked it to the big brass big time. They each settled for a million dollars per 22 minute TV segments.
With friends like that, who needs the U.S. Treasury?
