As Britney goes, so goes the US economy. Britney Spears is touring less, thus injecting less into the ailing US economy. Coincidence? Portfolio magazine doesn't think so.
The most useful magazine journalism of the (still) new year comes to us not from the usual sources -- Newsweek, Time, etc. -- but from Portfolio, a business publication. It has enumerated the vast amounts of money Britney Spears is worth not just to herself, but to others as well -- about $110 million to $120 million annually to the struggling U.S. economy. This is what Portfolio calls the Britney Industrial Complex.
