The New Urban Economy: Creative Capital and Effective Planning
28 February 2017
09:30
Clearly, for any modern city to enjoy sustainable growth and compete on the global stage, an innovative and creative sector is a prerequisite. A creative economy emerges following a post-industrial shift marking the transition from an economy producing goods to one producing information and knowledge.
Today, creative industries are leading the way when it comes to international trade. Statistically, it is a sector that displays impressive growth throughout the world, even at a time of economic crisis. In addition to unlocking a city’s economic potential, creative industries also facilitate growth in human capital. In turn, once the number of creative people with unique talents and skills reaches critical mass, an impetus is created that continues to feed economic and cultural progress. A pilot version of a creative capital index has been developed. This will reveal the features of the creative and innovative sector and the specific aspects of the institutional environment that influence the speed at which post-industrial economies emerge in the most dynamic regions of Russia. What impact does creative capital have on the development of a region’s culture, economy, and urban planning? What role will the innovative and creative sector play in the economy over the coming years? How will the growth of creative industries impact a city’s attractiveness to investors? How can creative companies based in the Russian regions become successful global players?
