Korea - How is the ‘creative economy’ working out? | The Creative Economy | Scoop.it

In BBC's Global Business this week, Peter Day travels to Seoul to find out about the Korean government’s strategy to solve these economic issues: ‘The Creative Economy’.


Korea aims to become Asia’s ‘start-up nation’ in the next three years, and is throwing vast sums of money into the technology sector to encourage people to become entrepreneurs. But this is a career choice that has until recently been dismissed in South Korean society. Can a government change a culture?

The Real Reason Creative Workers Are Good for the Economy

The Real Reason Creative Workers Are Good for the Economy | The Creative Economy | Scoop.it

How does creativity get turned into big commercial innovations that ultimately lead to new businesses, new jobs, higher wages and economic growth?

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

A new study by Neil Lee and Andrés Rodríguez-Pose of the London School of Economics takes a hard look at this important issue. In a forthcoming paper in the journal, Environment and Planning A (that expands upon a working paper from the U.K.-based innovation think tank Nesta, summarized in a post over at the World Economic Forum blog), they takes a close empirical look at the varied contributions to innovation made on the one hand by creative firms, and on the other by individual creative workers, regardless of where they work.

Phyllis Smith's curator insight, July 27, 2013 9:55 PM

If you want to leverage your business - open up your door and invite others to collaborate.  Many of your friends, co-workers, and family have diverse talents.  Tap into these resources and find new ideas.  If you don't know where to find others with shared interests - check out some of the social media sites such as meetup.com or netmixer.com.  Join a new group or explore a new hobby - you can even get involved with a book club.  Don't try to do everything yourself - co-create!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 9, 2013 12:57 PM

The Creative Economy: Can Industrial Giants Reinvent Themselves?

The Creative Economy: Can Industrial Giants Reinvent Themselves? | The Creative Economy | Scoop.it

While most big firms today are still mired in the Traditional Economy of the Great Stagnation, kept afloat by cheap money from central banks, still waiting for an improvement in the business cycle, firms in the Creative Economy are racing ahead by creating their own demand with continuous innovation.


The critical question is: Can the big industrial giants make the transition to the Creative Economy? Or are they doomed to decline and die, eventually to be replaced by disruptive new upstarts?

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

A fine blog post by Steve Denning.


Steve regularly writes on the creative economy in his blog posts on Forbes.


You can also follow him on Twitter here: @stevedenning.


His book: The Leader's Guide to Radical Management is a recommended read.
