Rihanna Wrecking Something Adds $66,000 in Value

Rihanna takes a picture with a guest at an NBA playoff game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center on May 9, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.

In destruction there is creation, and someone purchased an iPhone that Rihanna destroyed for $66,500

Rihanna dropped a fan's phone while taking a photo with him at a Clippers game, cracking the screen. The fellow with the defunct rectangle of fancy glass and aluminum decided to sell it on eBay (now signed with a heart and a rare Rihanna apology). Some other person in the world bought it for many thousands of dollars. 

It is perhaps presumptuous of me to recommend economic policy, but — the United States should cancel all other exports and rely solely on Rihanna damaging things for profit.
