Heritage is customer-led, defined HERITAGE FOR PEOPLE: HISTORY AND THEORY 33 by the user and not by authority. Hence an understanding of basic economics, of demand-and-supply relationships, is fundamental to heritage and its management. Heritage is for people; not just for a small minority of specialists and experts, but for everyone. Not only is it often intended to be for everyone's benefit, as most museums would claim, but also everyone is doing it. Not only are there motor museums, but lots of people spend their weekends carefully preserving old cars, from 'bangers' to Rolls-Royces.

Some such events may well be staging significant heritage materials - musical, artistic or theatrical - but, presumably, not every new band nor every new play has enough support for its conservation to be regarded as heritage. Cultural management also tends to be concerned with culture as art, rather than with the culture of everyday life.
