The Economics of Co-Creation. Can What Happened To Microbrewery Happens To The Auto Industry? By Idris Mootee

A lot of talk and interest around the concept of co-creation. It is no question that this is going to have asting implications of how products and experiences are designed, developed and marketed.

I’m still in Italy, where one of the topics of conversation is the recent special issue of The Economist, which discussed some of the problems that the economy here has experienced during the Berlusconi years (the special articles are summarised and linked here).

Have a nice week!
