© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016. Cultural economics has been fortunate in attracting eminent economists to contribute to it and none has made so comprehensive a contribution as Professor Sir Alan Peacock. The contributors to this book, many of whom are the current intellectual leaders of our field, honour Peacock’s legacy not directly in encomia, several of which have been published following his death in 2014, but by taking a new look at cultural economics. The authors are friends, colleagues, admirers and former students of Alan Peacock, several fitting into all three categories. Contributors were invited to write a chapter on a feature of Peacock’s work that has been important in their own work in cultural economics or in a related discipline and to present it at a conference hosted by the Department of Economics and Business of the University of Catania in September 2015, whose financial contribution and support is gratefully acknowledged. Peacock was an honorary professor at the university and he loved to visit it and Sicily. The book accordingly includes a wide range of topics from broadcasting to welfare economics, offering both an evaluation of research on the topic and suggesting new insights for further research in cultural economics.
