Economist Mariana Mazzucato's book, "The Entrepreneurial State: Debunking Public vs. Private Sector Myths," finds that the private sector makes innovative investments only after an entrepreneurial state paves the way. As a result, she argues that U.S. politicians need to have the courage to develop a more confident story about the state's role in the economy.
Mazzucato holds the RM Phillips chair in the Economics of Innovation at SPRU in the University of Sussex and received her PhD in Economics from The New School for Social Research.
