Product Description

Creative Industries: Contracts between Art and Commerce (9780674008083): Richard E. Caves: Books. Caves is a Harvard professor of political economy and author of a number of books on industrial efficiency, productivity, and competition. He admits to a two-decade fascination with the economics of the artistic and creative endeavor, but Caves worries that others may regard this interest as frivolous. Consequently, he thought it better to establish his reputation for professional seriousness before attempting this analysis. Caves looks at the visual and performing arts, cinema and television, sound recordings, book publishing, and toys and games to investigate how the theory of contracts and the logic of economic organization affect the production of simple creative goods and more complex goods like plays or motion pictures, which require teams of artists with diverse talents. Under Caves' scrutiny, art collectors and moviegoers are consumers; gallery owners are gatekeepers; and critics are certifiers. His work is both serious and scholarly and anything but frivolous.
