From our experience in the field of research, we have seen a real revolution in the last two decades regarding the role that economics should play in the analysis of culture. In the mid 90’s the view from the field of economics was that the economists of the culture spent their time with marginal and even curious amusements, but ultimately they were not relevant to explain the true dynamics of reality. Currently, all of the discussions on the development and growth models that should save Europe focus on issues that cultural economists had already dealt with such as human and social capital, symbolic goods, creativity, and innovation. We went from being an exotic part of the invisible school of thought in economics to the guests who could not miss any party that was organized under the guise of economics.
