The challenges of change for governments after Covid-19

Professor Mariana Mazzucato

28 October 13:00 CET

  • Will globalism collapse? What will follow?
  • Will nationalism and populism continue their ascent, or will a ”new left” emerge?
  • What would a cold war between the US and China mean for Europe?
  • Will state structures become stronger or revert to laissez-faire?
Mariana Mazzucato is Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London , where she is Founding Director of the UCL Institute for Innovation & Public Purpose. She was named as one of the '3 most important thinkers about innovation' by the New Republic and one of the 25 leaders shaping the future of capitalism by Wired. Her highly-acclaimed book The Entrepreneurial State: debunking public vs. private sector myths (2013) investigates the critical role the state plays in driving growth—and her book The Value of Everything: making and taking in the global economy (2018) looks at how value creation needs to be rewarded over value extraction.
