Conseil des Arts de Montréal vs. the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs

Howdy!

Conseil des Arts de Montréal - $10 million, 3,380,645 people: $2.96 per person

New York City Department of Cultural Affairs - $150 million, 8,062,027 people: $18.64 per person

Or if you prefer, lets remove the Cultural Institutions Group from New York City, the $30 million that New York City gives to the remaining Cultural Organizations (no organizations in buildings owned by the city, like museums...) equals $3.72 per person, or 26% more per capita.

What was that about there being no government funding of the arts in the United States? For goodness sakes, they are kicking our butt!
