can culture be reinvented to pump up a country's economy? can it be packaged in such a way that it can produce goods and commodities that would influence the global scene?
that's the stereotypical perspective of looking at it. But how could it be elevated to be something more?
I would not say stereotypical perspective - it is just how it is. Culture as an item is only useful as a commodity for tourism, from holidays to experience it,cultural goods for tourists, dancers and music for the tourists - what other commodity can be made out of how people live ?
"can it be packaged in such a way that it can produce goods and commodities that would influence the global scene?" Yes - that's how it already is called corporate capitalism - Holywood, fashion, media, the arts, television all promote consumer culture - buy, buy, buy, and which affects the whole of the world.
thank you! now that's another way at looking at it besides tourism. fashion is a product of culture. so is film and art, mass media....connecting my point,
@recommend1: Samsung is a product/ brand born of South Korea's culture--now, that IS more than looking at culture from a tourism standpoint i believe.
