Explanatory Answer

3 is the best starting sentence as it is the most general. 32 is a clear link: Sentence 3 states the creative industry is growing faster than the world economy and 2 adds to this saying that if the  creative element in other industries is taken into consideration, the creative element in the value of world industry would be larger still.

Sentence 1 carries forward the idea in 32, explaining how the creative element in product design can help sustain a competitive advantage. Sentence 4 concludes the paragraph saying that this is reason why today's trade issues are focused on intellectual property.

3214 is the most logical order.

The answer is '3214'
