Mission Economy



The extraordinary efforts that took mankind to the moon 50 years ago were more than a scientific feat of aeronautics. They required new forms of collaboration between the public sector (notably, NASA) and private companies. This book asks: what if the same level of boldness - the boldness that set inspirational goals, took risks and explicitly recognized that this requires large spending but will be worthwhile in terms of long-term growth - was applied to the biggest problems of our time, climate change, disease and inequality, to name only a few? Mariana Mazzucato argues that applying innovation to societal goals and structuring government budgets more explicitly to the long-term, as the moon programme did, we can do government differently.


Mariana Mazzucato (PhD) is Professor in the Economics of Innovation and

Public Value at University College London (UCL), where she is Founding

Director of the UCL Institute for Innovation & Public Purpose (IIPP). She is

winner of international prizes including the 2020 John Von Neumann Award, the

2019 All European Academies Madame de Staël Prize for Cultural Values and

the 2018 Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought. 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. She advises policy makers around the world on innovation-led inclusive and sustainable growth. Her current roles include being a member of the Scottish Government's Council of Economic Advisors; the South African President's Economic Advisory Council; the OECD Secretary General's Advisory Group on a New Growth Narrative; and the UN's Committee for Development Policy (CDP). Through her role as Special Advisor for the EC

Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, she authored the high

impact report on Mission-Oriented Research & Innovation in the European

Union, turning "missions" into a crucial new instrument in the European

Commission's Horizon innovation programme.
