I would put it even stronger: money can only be a driving force of society
when/because it is embedded in culture (and culture = the way we organize
our existence).
So I agree with your point. Still, I have the same reaction as probably
Geert when it comes to  
postings on nettime with the word 'art' in it. I just skip them.  
There is a problem with 'culture as after effect'. Art is a specific
culture criticism and  criticism always emerges as after effect. Art as
criticism is perhaps even more an after effect - because it takes a
specific mental orientation and labour to see it in the frame of criticism.
