"Fixing markets isn't enough. We have to actively shape and create them."
A professor at UCL, Mariana Mazzucato is one of the most well-respected economists working today. She advices policy-makers around the world, including the Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell. Mariana’s highly acclaimed book The Entrepreneurial State argues that governments do not simply correct market failures, but are key market innovators. She was named as one of the '3 most important thinkers about innovation' by the New Republic, and is on The Bloomberg 50 list of ‘Ones to Watch’ for 2019.
“If you were some kind of intellectual venture capitalist…you would feel safe investing big in Mazzucato.” – The Times
