Mariana Mazzucato, author of The Value of Everything and “one of the most influential economists in the world,” first set out to rewrite a narrative of corporate innovation that omitted the role of the state’s early investments in risk-taking. Now the European Parliament has just approved Mazzucato’s proposal for Horizon Europe, a set of concrete, measurable policies designed to invest heavily in moonshot solutions in five defined mission areas: “adaptation to climate change; cancer; healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters; climate-neutral and smart cities; and soil health and food.”
