IRISH EXAMINER: Time to stop feeling guilty about investing in the arts
Very Interesting article in the Irish Examiner by Declan Jordan. Declan is director of the Spatial and Regional Economics Research Centre at Cork University Business School.
“A sustainable economy and a society that is worth living in requires a vibrant arts sector. It makes sense, if only from a cold numbers perspective, to invest in the Arts. The economy trades on its reputation as creative, artistic, and innovative. When IDA Ireland presents to potential investors it uses our writers, musicians, and artists to sell an image of Ireland as a place of imagination and inventiveness.”
