Summary "In The Warhol Economy, Elizabeth Currid argues that creative industries like fashion, art, and music the economy of New York as much as - if not more than - finance, real estate, and law. And these creative industries are fueled by the social life that whirls around the clubs, galleries, music venues, and fashion shows where creative people meet, network, exchange ideas, pass judgments, and set the trends that shape popular culture." "The economics of art and culture in New York and other cities has been greatly misunderstood and underrated. The Warhol Economy explains how the cultural economy works - and why it is vital to all great cities."--BOOK JACKET.
