The Creative Economy (and have you taken my poll..look right)
The report, oriented towards the worldwide creative economy, recommends that governments invest in infrastructure, innovative financing possibilities for the arts, the development of cultural policy, drilling into export markets, and protecting copyrights. Culture is now a major source of income. Culture is the main export product of the USA. Music, movies and software from the US flood the world. This said, shame on the Prime Minister of Canada for announcing today that he plans to all but snuff out funding for our Arts & Culture for good.
