Abstract

Creativity is the ability to generate something new, merging data,perceptions and matters in order to produce new and useful things. About 22% ofthe Spanish employees belong to the «creative class» and about 5.7% of the productioncomes from the «creative industries». Despite these data, the general researchfocusing on the creative economy in Spain is poor. The aim of this article is to fillthis space by providing a general view of the creative economy in Spain, focusedon the «creative industries». The article introduces the basic theoretical aspects, themeasurement of creativity, compared data about production, employment and thelocation of creative industries, as well as the discussion about policy.
