In this sharp and controversial expose, Mariana Mazzucato debunks the pervasive myth that the state is a laggard, bureaucratic apparatus at odds with a dynamic private sector.

She reveals in detailed case studies, including a riveting chapter on the iPhone, that the opposite is true: the state is, and has been, our boldest and most valuable innovator.

Denying this history is leading us down the wrong path.

A select few get credit for what is an intensely collective effort, and the US government has started disinvesting from innovation.

The repercussions could stunt economic growth and increase inequality.

Mazzucato teaches us how to reverse this trend before it is too late.
