Abstract

We examine two related questions. First, whether the emerging literature on collaboration in creative communities provides any insights that might assist us in understanding the Chicago School of Economics. Secondly, whether the history of Chicago economics provides any insights that might enrich the literature on creative collaboration. The Chicago School is an obvious candidate for such a study because it has several of the features often attributed to creative communities.

Keywords: Chicago School of Economics, Chicago School, creative communities, Chicago economics, creative collaboration
