About The Creative Economy

About The Creative Economy | The Creative Economy | Scoop.it

The purpose of this site - The Creative Economy - is to highlight stories about the global shift from an industrial to a creative economy, and the underlying drivers of the transformation. 


Industries of the 21st Century will depend increasingly on the generation of knowledge through creativity and innovation. 


Human creativity and ingenuity is the ultimate economic resource. 


                                              ★★★★★


I believe that knowledge is everything. Knowledge is ideas. Knowledge is power. Knowledge is hope. 

But only if it is shared and applied.


That is why I created The Creative Economy on Scoop.it. My personal aim is to provide you with stories you can learn and grow from. The kind of stories that provokes personal reflection and constructive action. 

I'm co-founder of Future Associates, a consultancy that helps visionary companies identify and tackle the big shifts in the world by cultivating the skills, mindsets, and organizational cultures needed to succeed in times of change.

Here's Why Companies Are Desperate To Hire Anthropologists

Here's Why Companies Are Desperate To Hire Anthropologists | The Creative Economy | Scoop.it

Companies live and die by how well they understand their customers. Know who's good at understanding people? Social science.


While most execs are masters of analyzing spreadsheets, creating processes, and pitching products, anthropologists — and other practitioners of applied social science — can arrive at customer insights that big data tends to gloss over, especially around the role that products play in people's lives. 


That information is more valuable than you might think. What customers want from a product and what companies think they want can be totally different, but it can take an anthropological lens to learn why.

Promoting the Creative Economy

Promoting the Creative Economy | The Creative Economy | Scoop.it

Indonesia has wanted to promote its creative economy since President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono issued Presidential Instruction No.6/2009 and formed the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry in 2011. 

Considering the country has enormous cultural potential that is spread across more than 1,300 ethnicities, the government is confident that Indonesia can be competitive enough in the global market for creative products. 

Furthermore, during the presidential debate on June 15, we heard that both candidates would continue to promote creative economy development over the next five years if elected.

The creative economy story began in Bandung, where young people, mostly educated, introduced a new style of entrepreneurial activities in the late 2000s by utilizing individual creativity, or “making money from ideas”. Since then, the so-called creative industries have continued to grow in the city, especially design, indie music, as well as clothing factories and distribution outlets known as distro. 

They offer stunning fashion and music products, with quality comparable to international products. These activities indeed enrich the image of Bandung, which is gradually becoming known as a “creative city”. This creativity boom was also recognized internationally, after the Yokohama meeting in 2007 picked Bandung as one of its creative city pilot projects in East Asia.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

Having backpacked 3 months in this amazing country, I fully understand why Bandung is the epicenter of the creative economy in Indonesia. It is truly a melting pot of creative art forms.

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.
