Abstract

This paper proposes, by way of a theoretical model, that public subsidies for the arts act as a spur to the consumption of the arts which, in turn, increases the level of human capital, leading to increased economic growth. It points out that some recent studies in brain research deliver empirical evidence for this model, although it is as yet too early to prove it. Whilst, if accepted, the model will certainly justify subsidies for the arts, it still leaves many questions about efficient scope and scale unanswered.
