The article "Development fosters cultural diversity...up to a point" was recently published by InaGlobal, The review of creative industries and media.
The author, Maria Masood, is interested in the effects of economic development on cultural diversity in southern countries, particularly for the music and film industries. Using empirical results that show that income per capita has a significant effect on cultural diversity of cultural imports, she aims to explain that in the first instance, the diversity of the origin of imported goods goes up as wealth increases. Then, once a certain income threshold is reached, countries tend to restrict the number of cultural partners: the geographical diversity of cultural goods decreases, favoring American film and music exports.
