Event description

Description

Speaker: Mariana Mazzucato, University College London

Ken Dixon Lecture

Speaker biography: Mariana Mazzucato is a Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value and Director of the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose at University College London (UCL). Her work is focused on the economics of innovation; finance and economic growth; and the role of the State in modern capitalism.

She has advised policy makers around the world on how to achieve economic growth that is 'smart' and inclusive. Her book, The Entrepreneurial State: debunking public vs. private sector myths, challenges the image of the lethargic, regulating state versus the dynamic business sector—using historical examples to show public sector investments sparked technological revolutions. It offers a new way of thinking about political economy in the 21st century.

Her latest book is Rethinking Capitalism: Economics and Policy for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth, co-edited with Michael Jacobs.
