Campus Center Auditorium
Directing Economic Growth: A Mission-Oriented Approach

Can't attend in person? The lecture will be live-streamed

This lecture will make the case for rethinking the role of government in the economy so that it is better equipped to deal with the greatest challenges of our times—health pandemics, climate change and the digital divide. It will draw on Professor Mazzucato's recent widely acclaimed book, Mission Economy: a moonshot guide to changing capitalism, and focus on the need to move away from a reactive market fixing approach to a market shaping one. The lecture will give examples on the ‘how’: from ‘outcomes’ based budgeting, to redesigning procurement to nurture bottom up solutions, to a new symbiotic (versus parasitic) partnerships between the public and private sectors—walking the talk of stakeholder value.
