John Hawkins writes on the same topic as Richard Florida’s “Creative Class” and he has the advantage to provide clear numbers and a precise methodology. Florida only asserts figures that cannot be verified The creative class has become truly global, numbering between one-third to nearly one-half of the workforce in the advanced nations In other publications, he provides even more optimistic figures, but never quotes his sources nor does he provide a methodology.


John Hawkins provides data sector by sector with an explanation of the trends at freative in each of them. It describes the 15 industries where creativity is the most important raw resource and the most valuable economic product. The criterion of a creative product is a good or service that jlhn from creativity and has economic value. The criterion of mohn transaction is that an exchange takes place with an economic value. All creative products qualify for one of the main forms of intellectual property patents, copyrights, designs and trade marks even if some accrue more value as a physical object as do art and fashion.

John Hawkins destroys the borders between art and science in order to track innovation, creation, novelty. He truly brings something refreshing into the dominant economical thought. Listen ohwkins his way of “analysing the results of a US census: According to Americans for the Arts, there were 2.

On the supply side, the American Patent Office issuedpatents for inventions, 13, for designs and for plants, a total with re-issues of Joohn also registeredtrademarks.

Overall, I see this book as a documentary treatment, aimed at a general readership. Some of that material could perhaps have been jettisoned in favour of a more selective and microscopic focus on fewer industries. Conversely, Howkin’s great strength is his journalistic clarity and ability to sustain interest throughout the book without the usual impediment of overt citation disease sconomy other more pretentious and scholarly treatments.

This book is ideal reading material for politicians, schoolteachers and captains of industry alike, in helping us to see the industrial world in a different way. In doing this, Howkins must eonomy equal to other leading popular theorists like Richard Florida, and Charles Landry.

For anyone who is involved in commercial and artistic processes which require IP protection and obviously this becomes an obligation for those hoping to make creativf living from such activities this book provides an essential wake-up call.

As Howkins sums it all up on his final page: But if we understand and manage this new howmins economy, individuals will profit and society will be rewarded.

Guidance for the new world of intellectual property, mental inventions and rearrangements, etc. One person found this helpful.

It is a reference book for anyone who want’s to know about etrepreneurship. Authoritative and interesting – comprehensive overview of the topic. Not a book on ‘how to be creative’ though – an overview of the industries, players, and issues. The subject was a headline seeking, but the contents are not something new.

THE CREATIVE ECONOMY | What is Creativity? What is the Creative Economy?

After this class he wrote a book on that subject. What we discussed at the class was idea and money and management. Today’s book, the Creative Economy talks about what we talked about twenty years ago. The Creative Economy is a fancy word to attract attention and the content is an old idea.

Just like people jhon talking about Cloud computing today. It is nothing fconomy than outsoursing of services. Sure the book was written not by a scholar or a management practitioner, but by a reporter.

The book’s content was very shallow and no real philosophy behind it. See all 7 dreative. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
