Mariana Mazzucato, The Entrepreneurial State: Debunking Private vs. Public Sector Myths
About this Seminar:
Where do the boldest innovations, with the deepest consequences for society, come from?  

Business leaders, entrepreneurs, and libertarians claim that the private sector leads the way always, and government at best follows by decades and at worst impedes the process with bureaucratic regulations.

Mariana Mazzucato proves otherwise.  Many of the most profound innovationsfrom the Internet and GPS to nanotech and biotech had their origin in government programs developed specifically to explore innovations that might eventually attract private sector interest.  Governments can take on multi-decade, slow-payoff, ambitious projects where most businesses cannot.  The process works pretty well now.  How can it work better?

Mazzucato is a professor of the Economics of Innovation at Sussex University and author of The Entrepreneurial State: debunking private vs. public sector myths.

About the Series:
The Seminars About Long-term Thinking were started in 02003 to build a coherent, compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking, to help nudge civilization toward Long Now's goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.
