Paying the Piper: Culture, Music and Money by Sir Alan Peacock

In this semi-autobiographical account, Sir Alan Peacock examines the subject of arts funding. Drawing on over 25 years experience as economic adviser on musical matters, Peacock criticizes much of current UK arts policy thinking and practice. His often light-hearted personal anecdotes always reveal a serious point, as he gives insights into how policy is conducted and explains how economic analysis can throw light on problems of the music profession.
