Review of Economics and Culture by David Throsby
Volume 6, No. 2 (Summer 2003)
In sum, Economics and Culture is a serious attempt to bring economic analysis to bear on cultural issues. It is a fine survey of the cultural economics literature and makes a number of good isolated insights regarding the survival of culture. However, these strengths are ultimately more than offset by ambiguous analysis and arbitrary assumptions. The reader still awaits a satisfying economic analysis of culture.
