Last February 29, an auspicious day for thinking out of the box, the Business Economics Association, a student organization of the University of Asia and the Pacific, organized Economic Summit 2012: Tapping the Human Creative Potential. This was the first time the BEA put together the various schools and institutes of UA&P to address a current national issue. The speakers and students were not limited to the School of Economics but included the schools of management, education, the humanities, political economy and integrated marketing communications. The multidisciplinary nature of the topic, i.e. creativity, enterprise and economic growth, made it necessary to involve the various sciences represented by the different schools and institutes. This initiative fits very well the university-wide effort in UA&P to encourage multidisciplinary research, dialogue and communication. I was assigned the topic "Creativity and Economic Growth."
