Good Reads | New Artistic Democracy
The theory that seems to be in common use in the industry is that a few experts have the knack for knowing how to allocate the resources for what is created.

The concentration of power is a result of the distribution model of physical media or broadcast networks. These are artifacts of a technological infrastructure that was built in the last century. An infrastructure whose replacement is unavoidable.
Its replacement will enable creation and distribution of art to be democratized.
