Technology and creativity seem to be two core constructs that have dominated recent debates for understanding the driving forces in twenty-first-century economies, and in particular capitalist economies, debated under such terms as ‘Experience Economy’ (Pine & Gilmorein The Experience Economy. Harvard Business School Press, Boston, MA, 1999) or ‘Name Economy’ (Moeran in Anthropological perspectives on economic development and integration. Elsevier, Amsterdam, pp. 299–321, 2003) or the more general term ‘New Economy’ to mention but a few of the terms coined.
