The Culture Industries:
the Game of Economics and Politics


Are cultural industries (publishing, show business, multimedia etc) reaching the peak of their natural growth? 06/21 report by Price Waterhouse Coopers for years 2006-2010 predicts the first in history relatively modest "constant growth" of 6.6% - instead of previous 11%, up to the 1800 billion USD in 2010. Can it be due to wrong management policy?

Spectacular concentration of capital in seventieths and eighties introduced corporate management to the sector where  the demand is based on highly individual appeal.

Cultural industries are conveying idioms and identities so governments are vitally interested to tame corporate instincts. It means market regulations.
