The economics of the arts and culture

Professor Throsby’s research on the economics of the arts and culture has had a range of national and international impacts. His research has had a significant impact on Australian national cultural policy through analyses of the cultural industries, through the development and conduct of artist surveys every five to seven years, and through path-breaking empirical work on the economics of the Australian book industry. The research has had impact through the development and implementation of methodology for a national survey of remote Indigenous artists.

At an international level, the work has had a range of impacts on policy-making in institutions such as the World Bank and UNESCO.
