Product description


"[Mazzucato] argues persuasively that a successful, innovative society must draw on symbiotic partnerships between governmental and private entities."
--Richard N. Cooper, Foreign Affairs

"Conventional economics offers abstract models; conventional wisdom insists that the answer lies with private entrepreneurship. In this brilliant book, Mariana Mazzucato argues that the former is useless and the latter incomplete."
--Martin Wolf, Financial Times

"Mazzucato argues that long-term, patient government funding is an absolute prerequisite for breakthrough innovation.Even if you disagree with Mazzucato's argument, you should read her book. It will challenge your thinking."
--Bruce Upbin, Forbes

"It is one of the most incisive economic books in years."
--Jeffery Madrick, New York Review of Books

"Ms. Mazzucato is right to argue that the state has played a central role in producing game-changing breakthroughs, and that its contribution to the success of technology-based businesses should not be underestimated."
--The Economist

"A meticulously argued treatise that shows how unwise our conventional wisdom has become."
--Christopher Dickey, Newsweek

"Provides persuasive evidence that governments deserve more credit than private companies for the development of most important modern technologies."
--Edward Hadas, Reuters

"A skillful combination of the history of technology, empirical evidence, and policy analysis--the book contains a critical reading of data and arguments that run counter to established views while never falling short of offering constructive solutions."
--Davide Consoli, Science

"Makes an engaging, persuasive case in favor of the state, and suggests one recommend it not just as an instrument of market repair but also as a prerequisite for future prosperity."
--J. Bhattacharya, Choice

"In this trailblazing book on the role of government as both a risk-taking funder of innovation and a market creator, Mariana Mazzucato persuasively argues that the government is a key enabler of technological innovations that drive economic growth. This important book should be read by policymakers, opinion leaders, and others with a stake in funding economic growth."
--Arnold T. Davis, CFA Institute
