Markets in everything, Paris Hilton edition

Hilton also told the magazine she collects $500,000 in fees just to show up at parties and other events from Las Vegas to Tokyo. Her best-paying gig, she said, was a recent Austrian appearance.

"I had to say ‘hi’ and tell them why I loved Austria so much," she is quoted as saying.

And why does she like Austria? "Because they pay me $1 million to wave at crowds!"

Here is the full story.

The story posted tells about how her income is rising, but also indicates that she has announce that she is "not having sex for a year," because she is "sick of boyfriends" although she also announced that she has only had sex with two men in her life. Juxtaposing these, the economically minded has to wonder: is sex an inferior good in the case of Ms. Hilton?

How much could we scrape together on the Net to pay
P. Hilton in order to never see her again, clothed or
unclothed? ALOT, I tell you...

Then again, I assume she bothers most of the religious
right far more than she bothers me, and that alone is
worth putting up with her.

To Statler,

A male hollywood movie star from the 50's was caught with a prostitute. The intrepid reporter asked him why he paid women to be with him when so many women would be willing to be with him for free. He replied, I do not pay them to sleep with me, I pay them to go away.
