J. Flibbert, Commerce in Culture: States and Markets in the World Film Trade © Andrew J. Flibbert 2007 36 COMMERCE IN CULTURE Trade in Cultural Commodities A complex array of factors shape the trade in motion pictures and account for the direction and volume of film exports. These factors differentiate film from some tradable commodities while associating it with others, including an emerging subset of goods in the service sector of the global economy. They include the “nonrivalness” of film as a commodity; the need to reduce risk and uncertainty in the business; the expression of cultural power through filmmaking; and the effects of “language markets” on trade patterns.

In purely economic terms, filmmaking is therefore more comparable to the writing of new software or the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, for example, than to the production of automobiles. High initial expenditures for each new film “unit” are analogous to research and development costs, which are recouped by sales in as many markets as possible. Unlike the labor- or material-intensive production in automaking, the marginal cost of producing additional film units for sale does not come principally from labor or raw materials, which have already been sunk into production.

Changes in market structure, including shifts in state ownership, therefore explain the varying capacity of societal actors to promote their interests successfully. Institutional Parity In addition to affecting the flow of imports and exports (trade policy), globalization raises questions about whether the state can and should regulate the substantive content of national cultural production (cultural policy). State authorities responding to globalization are constrained and enabled by the existing institutional structure in the country.
