In The Warhol Economy, Elizabeth Currid argues that creative industries like fashion, art, and music drive the economy of New York as much as - if not more than - finance, real estate, and law. The implications of this argument are far-reaching, and not just for New York. Urban policymakers, Currid suggests, have not only seriously underestimated the importance of the cultural economy, but they have failed to recognize that it depends on a vibrant creative social scene - the social, cultural, and economic mix that she calls the Warhol economy. With vivid first-person reporting and fascinating original interviews with many of New York's most important creative figures, Currid takes the reader into the city spaces where the social and economic lives of creativity merge.
