Das Phantom der Oper: Wie die Prunksucht absolutistischer Fürsten noch heute für blühende Landschaften sorgt

Leere Haushaltskassen verleiten die politisch Verantwortlichen schnell dazu, am Kulturetat zu sparen. Das könnte sich als kontraproduktiv erweisen, denn kulturelle Angebote steigern das regionale Wirtschaftswachstum. Eine aktuelle Studie des ifo Instituts, die zusammen mit der Universität Jena und der Universität Stirling erstellt wurde, zeigt, inwieweit kulturelle Angebote Städte und Regionen interessanter für hochqualifizierte Arbeitskräfte machen und damit auch zu einem höheren Wirtschaftswachstum in der Region führen.
