It's easy to not worry as much about cash when you know you're not paying bills. Kids just do things on their free time and use it as pocket money.>Don't under sell yourself, it hurts everyone.
Ok, no. Fuck doing anything for anyone other than you. You're not responsible for whether other artists get to eat or not. People should charge what works for them, and if it's petty cash for good art, sucks to be everyone else. Most of the time people at a good level will have realistic incentives to charge more, so it's unlikely that they can sustain themselves/control the demand for long charging little.
What most people wanting to regulate rates forget is that people live in different parts of the globe and what would feed you a meal in NY would buy a guy groceries for the week in Thailand; why would that guy charge more when he can make a fortune by charging less than you, taking your clients and live like a king there?
No one cares that you can't live as an artist in the first world.
