"Without freedom, no art; art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others." Albert Camus

What can economic thinking tell you about art and culture? What can art and culture tell you about economic thinking? Art, culture, and the free market are interconnected in powerful and beautiful ways. Viewing art through an economic lens can show how beauty and order emerges from seeming chaos. Viewing economics through an artistic lens can show how art has shaped culture, fought tyranny, and held society together.
