Kim Kardashian's $10 Million Wedding Actually Stimulated The Economy, Claims Expert — Here's How!

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries may have dropped mega bucks — and gotten paid big dollars — for their Aug. 20 wedding, but it wasn’t all in vain. Their five-star wedding actually might have helped the suffering U.S. economy!

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries‘s wedding may seem over-the-top and too extravagant to most people, but best-selling author, Hollywood screenwriter, and conservative social commentarian Andrew Klavan tells HollywoodLife.com the nuptials actually helped stimulate California’s suffering economy.

“It cost ten million dollars for that wedding, and every penny of that was spent on somebody doing a job. An honest job, that’s her money [and those that sponsored her] to spend as [they] want, and when she buys musicians flowers and a cake she’s stimulating the economy,” Klavan says, adding, “The rich create jobs, it’s the rich who make the economy work by spending their money on the rest of us. No one is hired by a poor person.”

So how exactly did Kim and Kris’s $10 million wedding actually help anyone?

“The wedding helped because [the people who were hired] got the money from the work: the money to decorate the place or be a musician at the wedding, or whatever they did,” Klavan explains. “Now they can spend the money on what they want. It’s all a chain reaction.”

Plus, the companies who worked with the Kardashian on the wedding now have boosted their images just by association to the famous family, which will be featured on blogs, news programs and their reality show.

Says Klavan, “When you work with a celebrity like that, it raises your profile and makes you into a desired person and that’s going to help the economy.”

Do YOU think Kim and Kris’s wedding did the nation any favors, or are you disenchanted by their fairy tale wedding? Sound off below.

Umm okay, It was only a temporary job. How can you say it was helping the economy when those jobs were only temporary. I’m sure those proceeds were going directly to Vera Wang, who created her dresses, the florist, the church, the wedding planner, etc. etc. and what it comes down to is, the money goes directly back into the pockets of the wealthy. Yep! All of those people who I just named in Kim K’s circle. The share of wealth never leaves the circle. The rich who spend money on designer clothing, etc, etc, you can’t convince American’s that it’s helping the poor.
