How can culture and the market be married in a way that is favourable to developing countries? This book pushes the frontiers of the new development paradigm by arguing that developing countries can use their creative assets and energies as a source of economic growth - if they can better position themselves in the global economy. It turns on its head the polarized debate about commerce and culture, by taking a fresh look at some traditional activities whose intrinsic cultural value has for too long hidden their economic worth. By bringing together new theoretical ideas, country case-studies and policy analysis, this book aims to show how developing countries can benefit from the emerging opportunities in global creative industries. With new approaches in mind, Barrowclough and Kozul-Wright commissioned essays from economists, lawyers and industry experts on global trade trends; digital-technology; film in West Africa; audio visuals in India; the music industry in Brazil and the Caribbean; the copyright industry in Arab countries, and policy lessons from developed countries - including sources of finance, subsidies and the role of incubators and intermediaries. They aim to guide debate, clarify new themes and illustrate how the cultural resources of the developing world can become a new way of integrating into the global economy - helping to raise the voices of developing countries, widening our range of creative choices, and promoting cultural diversity and economic and human development. This book will be of major contemporary interest to economists and policy-makers alike, as well as those with an interest in industrial organization, development policy, evolutionary economics and the creative industries.Creative Industries and Developing Countries: Voice, Choice and Economic Growth (Routledge Studies in Contemporary Political Economy), 1 was published 2007 under ISBN 9780415391382 and ISBN 0415391385.
