Courageous Bets and Equitable Returns

Inspired by the work of Marianna Mazzucato, author of The Entrepreneurial State: Debunking Public vs. Private Sector Myths and R.M Phillips Professor in the Economics of Innovation at the University of Sussex, the background paper challenging Canadian perceptions of public investment in innovation was prepared by the Broadbent Institute’s Director of Research Jonathan Sas for the Atkinson Foundation.

A digital copy of the paper is available at and a video of Mazzucato's speech is available here.
