Rent Seeking e Lixo Acadêmico
Uma praga pior que a saúva e tão danosa e nefasta para o Brasil quanto os adEvogados e jornalistas escroques são os comunistas travestidos de economistas acadêmicos: Professor Mazzucato’s project will question whether austerity and innovation policy can work hand in hand, and will focus on the need to develop ‘smart’ innovation-led growth, with concrete proposals on how to improve the Brazilian system of innovation. The work will build on her previous collaboration with the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) on mission-oriented financing. This work has been supported with a £100,000 grant from BNDES and Professor Mazzucato gave a sold-out keynote lecture at the BNDES during last week’s trip. The project will also draw on the experience of successful mission-oriented innovation strategies around the world, such as those examined in The Entrepreneurial State.
