How Much Music is Enough?


We may or may not be fed up with the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, but just as economist Tyler Cowen recently wondered how much porn is enough, the Economist's Megan McArdle (she's also an occasional Reason contributor) is wondering how much music is enough. (She's sure 1100 tracks doesn't cut it.) With storage space not an issue, my answer is: no amount is enough. (With storage space an issue, the many thousands of LPs and CDs crowding my home already are shouting that I need to surrender.)
