Marian Noga

Marian Noga: Culture as a determinant of economic growth The general opinion is considered that culture must have an impact on economic growth and development. Except that when we move to the analysis it turns out that, for example. Accordance with the system of economic accounting, the more work employed in cultural industries and creative industries, the greater the share of culture in GDP and eo ipso in economic growth. This is only partly true, because culture has a far greater impact on the economic development of the following reasons: (1) the purpose of management must always be derived from human culture gospodarującego; (2) the reasonableness of management can not be determined by the model of homo economicus, as a model of human fictional, theoretical, which must be in economic models actually working man. To create such a model we need to reduce the level of abstraction by introducing culture as a context management. Then the economy will be able to draw predictive conclusions of which has not always able to do; (3) the cultural context and behavioral economics can make learning predictive formulating conclusions. Without culture, economics can become just a reflection research; (4) culture is the carrier of the progress of civilization, which increases the well-being of individuals and society. The full impact of culture on the economy and social welfare can be measured by proposed by the Author taxonomic measure of economic well-being of cultural participation in the growth of prosperity (TMDEK). Marian Noga - Polish economist, professor and former rector of the University of Economics in Wroclaw, Sen. fourth and fifth term of office, from 2004 to 2010 a member of the Monetary Policy Council.

Their aim was simple: to save 200 million Polaroid instant cameras from becoming utterly useless. Two years later, the fledgling start-up began producing its own re-formulated versions of classic Polaroid instant film formats, including SX-70, 600, and Image-Spectra, as well as 8x10, at plants in Enschede, in The Netherlands, and Monheim, Germany. Today, Impossible is no longer a ‘project’ but a fast-growing company with around 130 employees in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Britain, France, the USA, Japan and China. Its core products are analog instant film, refurbished Polaroid cameras, and its own-designed range of analog instant cameras. But Impossible’s ambitions are bigger: from its new creative headquarters in Berlin, Germany, Impossible is intent on creating the future of analog instant photography.
