Abstract/Summary The creative industries are key drivers of modern economies. While economic analysis has traditionally advanced a market-failure model of arts and culture, this book argues for an evolutionary market dynamics or innovation-based approach. The book explores theoretical and conceptual aspects of an evolutionary economic approach to the study of the creative economy. Topics include creative businesses and labour markets, social networks, innovation processes and systems, institutions, and the role of creative industries in market dynamics and economic growth.

Additional Notes This paper was written in 2009 when Earl audited one of Potts's lectures on Hyman Minsky's 'financial instability hypothesis' and realized that a similar argument could be made about the competitive organizational dynamics of creativity. This is a truncated version of a longer paper yet to be published. [Prolegomena to chapter]
