The Entrepreneurial State

Debunking Public Vs. Private Sector Myths

In this sharp and controversial expos#65533;, Mariana Mazzucato debunks the pervasive myth that the state is a laggard, bureaucratic apparatus at odds with a dynamic private sector. She reveals in detailed case studies, including a riveting chapter on the iPhone, that the opposite is true: the state is, and has been, our boldest and most valuable innovator. Denying this history is leading us down the wrong path. A select few get credit for what is an intensely collective effort, and the US government has started disinvesting from innovation. The repercussions could stunt economic growth and increase inequality. Mazzucato teaches us how to reverse this trend before it is too late.

In all honesty I only skimmed this book, as I had already read, individually, many of the points the author so cogently makes and justifies. Anyone familiar with the history of technology, both globally and in North America, realizes the author is on target. It would take a month to recount all the tech advances just out of the NASA space program!
