What is meant by the creative economy and what does it mean for how we understand cultural work? Following a recent public lecture hosted by LSE’s Department of Media and Communications, Professor Philip Schlesinger, Professor in Cultural Policy in the Centre for Cultural Policy Research/CREATe at the University of Glasgow and Visiting Professor in the Department of Media and Communications at LSE, outlines the history of the concept of the creative industries from the time of the New Labour in the late 1990s to the present day, arguing that the complexity of cultural value has been subordinated to economic value.
