A book entitled For a smart market: cultural diversity, the market, and regulation (Por un mercado inteligente : diversidad cultural, mercado y regulacion) has just been published by Erasmus Editions (Erasmus Ediciones). The main concepts of cultural diversity, the market, and regulation are covered in three chapters.
The author, Martí Petit, is a Catalan researcher recognized as a specialist on the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. Mr. Petit closes his work with this warning: “The mistake we all risk making is thinking that the simple fact of adopting the UNESCO Convention on Cultural Diversity will fix the major imbalances in the worldwide flow of culture. Without constant and sustained pressure by the public to ensure that public proceedings promote cultural diversity, things will not move forward of their own accord.”
