David Pakman on "The Price of Music"

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/19/14)
David Pakman writes an interesting piece for Re/Code on how much the average consumer paid for music at the height of music buying -- and then compares it to what is going on now.
The data shows that $120 per year is far beyond what the overwhelming majority of consumers will pay for music, and instead shows that a price closer to $48 per year is likely much closer to a sweet spot to attract a large number of subscribers.

I apparently spend a lot more money on music than the average consumer.

I've easily spent over $50 already, and I'm being much more conservative about my spending these days.
