The Value of Everything
The award-winning economist Mariana Mazzucato has been called the “world’s scariest economist.” Why? She challenges us to reconsider capitalism as it exists today. Focusing on innovation-led, inclusive, and sustainable growth, Mazzucato examines the critical — and misunderstood — role that governments play in fostering innovation. Her latest book, The Value of Everything, examines the difference between value creation, value extraction, and value destruction. She argues that to reform capitalism, we urgently need to rethink where wealth comes from and which activities create it, which extract it, which destroy it.
