#357 / Leftish



That is Mariana Mazucato, above, described by The New York Times as a "leftish economist." Mazucato describes herself as follows: 

I am a Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London (UCL), and Founder/Director of UCL's Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose. My work is focused on the relationship between innovation and the direction of growth, with emphasis on rethinking the public sector’s role to ensure growth is more innovation-led, inclusive and sustainable. I work with global leaders on ‘mission oriented’ policies, which can steer solutions towards grand challenges from the battle against climate warming to building resilient health systems. My 2013 book, The Entrepreneurial State: debunking public vs. private sector myths, looks at the ‘investor of first resort’ role that the State has played in the history of technological change — from the Internet to biotech— and the lessons for a Green New Deal. In 2016 I co-edited the book Rethinking Capitalism: Economics and Policy for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth focussed on new economic thinking to drive more effective economic policies. My 2018 book, The Value of Everything: making and taking in the global economy, brings the debate about value back to the heart of economics, so to ensure we are rewarding value creation over value extraction and destruction.

In The Times' story about Mazucato, which appears on the front page of the "Sunday Business" section on December 1, 2019, Mazucato says that "the left is losing around the world because they focus too much on redistribution and not enough of the creation of wealth." Her analysis urges an "Entrepreneurial State," and complains about the "free-market wisdom that cutting public budgets spurs economic growth." In fact, she says, "there's been kind of a strange symbiosis between mainstream economic thinking and stupid policies."

I haven't read any of Mazucato's many books, but I like what she says in the article in The Times. Is there really "a symbiosis between mainstream economic thinking and stupid policies?" Is it really true that "the state," meaning the governmental institutions that have the potential, and mission, to represent us all, collectively, are really better innovators than those motivated by selfishly directed and individualistic materialism?

I think I can buy that. Color me convinced!

  2. I was searching for loan to sort out my bills& debts, then i saw comments about Blank ATM Credit Card that can be hacked to withdraw money from any ATM machines around you . I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting { cyberhackingcompany@gmail.com} they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with$50,000,000.00 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 24 hours later, i was shock to see the UPS agent in my resident with a parcel{card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work's after the agent left.

  5. I was beyond depressed as the cryptocurrency ecosystem lost over $90bn in total market capitalization under 24hrs as a result of the uncertainty the COVID-19 pandemic brought into the market. Bitcoin fell from $7,800 to $3,800 within 24 hours. I lost a little over $12,850 under 24hrs. I am quite proactive so instead of folding my arms sad and doing nothing I began looking for ways to make my money back and I opted for cloud mining with THEBTCHASH dot COM after doing an extensive research, the rest they say is history but to begin mining bitcoins, you'll need to acquire a significant number of bitcoin mining hardware components running into millions of dollars. In the early days of bitcoin, it was possible to mine with your computer CPU or high speed video processor card. Today that's no longer possible. Bitcoin mining with anything less will consume more in electricity than an average American will earn in 10 years. TheBTCHash Cloud Mining Software V3.0 bridges this gap. The software Is an advanced cloud-based mining software connected to strong physical mining plants for optimum bitcoin generation. With Speed: 79.14 quintillion hashes per second (EH/s) I was able to mine a total of 3.89 bitcoins ($19,380) under two hours. The process was seamless. Worth my time and resources expended. The bitcoin's crash in price affected me terribly but now I am back and even better! THEBTCHASH is such a life saver!
