Education in the Creative Economy: Knowledge and Learning in the Age of Innovation

What Education in the Creative Economy does brilliantly is to remind us that learning is not merely the precondition for innovation, technological progress, and the over-hyped rise of an information economy, it is also the precondition for imagination, civic courage, and collective struggles that expand and deepen the process of democratization. Education in the Creative Economy is a breakthrough book that critically engages a range of complex issues regarding the brave new world in which new technologies and knowledge production redefine the nature of the present. But it does more. In breathtaking fashion it dresses cogently and with great insight what this new regime of production, consumption, and learning might mean for a future in which democratic values, social justice, and political agency once again matter.”—Henry Giroux.
