Moonshot Ambitions with Mariana Mazzucato (EN)

How do we get out of this crisis and what can we expect from the government? We seek advice from Professor and economist Mariana Mazzucato. It’s time to put an end to prejudices about value creation, innovation and the public sector. Mazzucato sees the pandemic as an opportunity to build a healthier and more sustainable economy. One who puts people at the centre. One where value is not only financial. Mazzucato argues that governments must dare to pursue moonshot ambitions.
