Abstract In 1996Professor Sir Allan Peacock was entitled an honorary fellow of ACEI for the first time in the
history of Association of Cultural Economics International for his contribution to cultural economicswhich is a
good proof of his status and influence in cultural economics community The most outstanding influence of Allan
Peacock is as follows he combined his general economic theory with aestheticsmanagement and advisory
experience of his deeply loved arts These experiences sharpened his understanding on cultural economics while
did not affect his economic professionalism His representative workPaying the Piper CultureMusic and
Moneycombines his economical professionalism seamlessly with his experiences and thoughts on artsis taken as
a classic of cultural economics During his half century career as cultural economicshe did not only mold the
general structure of cultural economicssuch as his contribution on legality of subside on artsgeneral economic
theory of public broadcasting and some economic problems of specific cultural areasbut also exploited new
subjectsincluding methods of cultural subsidy and workable competitionof public broadcasting service All
above is the legacy left by Allan Peacockwhich also makes him a non-ignorable figure in cultural economics
while this thesis attempts to introduce the gist of his thought with a wish to intrigue Chinese academic community
to learn more and benefit more from his works
