The so-called creative economic activities have become one of the central axes of both regional and local development in multiple and diverse territories of the planet. This book analyzes the way in which these activities are present and have an impact on the economic growth and development of the regions of Spain, Mexico and other related countries.
The economics of creative activities has been studied primarily in developed countries in Northern Europe and the Americas; therefore, this book represents a valuable analytical effort to approach the subject from Spain and Mexico, geographically distant realities but close in heritage and cultural transmission.
The book contains eighteen chapters that bring together thirty-five experts on the subject, from different universities and research centres in Spain, Mexico, Ecuador, Italy and Turkey. It consists of six parts that discuss aspects related to the economics of creative activities: measurement; agglomeration and localization; entrepreneurial activity and exports; labor markets; productivity and externalities; and governance, Mediterranean creativity and transculturation. The purpose of presenting these studies is to contribute to their knowledge in regions that belong to the Ibero-American sphere, in order to motivate the debate on the coincidences and divergences that may exist with the dynamics prevailing in the developed countries of the northern hemisphere.
