    The work focuses on a 1-year investigation on economic issues and summarizes the 2 practical works developed in the same time span (respectively THE MIDAS TOUCH_Money talks and THE MIDAS TOUCH_Bill(ig) ). The 3-volume theoretical writing included in the wooden box ranges from art aesthetical values theories and art market to different views on our contemporary financial structures.
