ABOUT MILENA THOMAS
Milena Thomas wears many professional hats: she is a professional vocalist, voice teacher, professor, market analyst, and economic researcher. This blog is an extension of her personal interest in exploring arts and culture through the lens of finance and economics.
Arts and culture are not often discussed in the same breath as finance and economics, and these cross-disciplines have much to offer the other. To many artists, profit is a dirty word. Some artists tend to paradoxically believe their financial success is a mark of their artistic failure to be original or creative enough.
The fields of finance and economics can benefit from understanding creativity, and the role they can play to enhance artistic pursuits, ensuring freedom of expression and fiscal viability. Those working in financial and economic disciplines can also benefit from understanding the limits of creativity, and that perhaps some of the most creative financial modeling and economic theories should remain in the realm of the theoretical.
