Creative industries and innovation in a knowledge economy
Potts, Jason D. (2012) Creative industries and innovation in a knowledge economy. In Rooney, David J., Hearn, Gregory N., & Kastelle, Timothy (Eds.) Handbook On The Knowledge Economy, Volume Two. Edward Elgar Publishing Limited, Cheltenham, United Kingdom, pp. 193-203.
The cultural and creative industries contribute to the knowledge economy by their role in reproducing cultural knowledge and through provision of entertainment, experience and leisure goods with cultural content, for which they are widely acknowledged as suffering serious market failure problems (Baumol and Bowen, 1966; Throsby and Withers, 1979). But they also contribute to the innovation process, an aspect that has only recently been appreciated. Specifically, the creative industries are a driver of the knowledge economy by their contribution to the innovation process on the demand side of consumer uptake of new ideas and by their facilitation of consumer-producer interaction. The creative industries are, in this respect, a legitimate part of the innovation system of a knowledge economy.
