A Handbook of Cultural Economics / Edition 2by Ruth Towse
Pub. Date: 08/11/2011
Publisher: Elgar, Edward Publishing, Inc.
Academic economists from Europe, North America, and Australia provide a broad reference on the economics of the creative and performing arts and the heritage and cultural industries, a field that used to be called the economics of the arts. The titles of the alphabetically arranged entries have been kept simple to facilitate use; cross- references and a detailed index point readers to related topics. The general themes are the economic characteristics of cultural goods, cultural policy, the finance of culture, and analytical approaches. The entry-specific bibliographies refer mostly to articles in technical journals. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
