More Information
Cultural economics deals with many aspects of the creative economy including the art market, heritage, live performing arts and cultural industries. Teaching Cultural Economics introduces the range and scope of these subjects through short chapters by experienced teachers who are expert in the topic of their chapters.

The guide starts out with chapters on the experience of teaching cultural economics by leading exponents in the field. Chapters then follow grouped by general topic: financing cultural production, artists’ labour markets, consumer behaviour in the cultural sector, digitisation and copyright and case studies of creative industries.

The breadth of material provided within these pages is invaluable to teachers who wish to offer courses in cultural economics and are seeking guidance for developing a new course, as well as for teachers who are already teaching cultural economics and are seeking inspiration for new case studies. The material can also be used by teachers of other courses who wish to teach cultural economics as part of their curriculum.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book, composed by three leading scholars in the field, includes 38 articles that are most useful for courses in the Economics of Culture. They cover a broad range of topics, among them various relationships to digitization. I highly recommend it.’
– Bruno S. Frey, University of Basel, Switzerland
