In 2019, she was awarded the All European Academies Madame de Staël Prize for Cultural Values, honoring her contributions for analyzing the governments’ roles in fostering innovation.


Two chapters in the book are dedicated to the emerging ‘green technology’ revolution. She details the public funds that she argues are laying the groundwork for this revolution in a similar way that the state invested in the most high-risk areas of biotech and nanotech. The book concludes with the author’s contention that in all these examples, the risks were socialized while the rewards were privatized, and considers different ways to change this dynamic to produce more ‘inclusive growth’.

Her new book The Value of Everything: making and taking in the global economy was published in April 2018 in the UK by Penguin (Allen Lane), and was launched in the US in September 2018 by Public Affairs. It has been shortlisted for this year’s Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year prize.

In 2013 the New Republic called her one of “the three most important thinkers about innovation”.

In 2015 Mazzucato was commissioned to write a report for the Brazilian Government’s Ministry for Science, Technology & Innovation on Brazil’s innovation policy which was published on April 6, 2016.

In her recent work, since 2014, Mazzucato has developed her critique of “market failure theory” and her concept of the state’s role in the economy as one of “creating and shaping new markets” rather than just fixing them. Her work with Carlota Perez has considered how such a view can enable a new understanding of ‘green’ as a redirection of the entire economy. Her work with Caetano Penna has focussed on the way in which a mission oriented market shaping framework can provide a new understanding of the role of state investment banks.

In 2014, she was nominated for the IPEG Book Prize and the Industry & Innovation DRUID Award for Best Paper for her novel thinking in understanding the roles of the state in public policy and innovation. In the same year, a German translation of The Entrepreneurial State (Das Kapital des Staates) was shortlisted for the “German Business Book Prize” (“Deutscher Wirtschaftsbuchpreis”).


From 2013 to 2016, Mazzucato was a council member at The University of Sussex.

Mazzucato’s research focuses on the relationship between financial markets, innovation and economic growth – at the company, industry and national level.

In 2013 Mazzucato published The Entrepreneurial State: debunking public vs. private sector myths (Anthem). The ideas in the book were first set out in a shorter pamphlet for the think tank Demos, called The Entrepreneurial State. The 2013 book argues that the idea of the State as a static bureaucratic organisation only needed to ‘fix’ market failures, leaving dynamic entrepreneurship and innovation to the private sector, is wrong. She outlines a number of case studies across different sectors, including biotech, pharmaceuticals and clean technology, to show that the high-risk investments are being made by the state before the private sector gets involved. In a chapter examining the iPhone, she outlines how the technologies that make it ‘smart’ – the internet, GPS, its touchscreen display and the voice-activated Siri – were all Government funded.

Similarly, in another paper for the think tank Policy Network called “Rebalancing What?”, Mazzucato argues that the problem is not only one of short-termism, it is also about the way in which financial activities focused on value extraction have been rewarded above activities focused on value creation – often leading to value destruction.

In 2013, Mazzucato’s book Entrepreneurial State was listed in Financial Times Selection of Books of the Year. The book also won her the New Statesman/SPERI Prize in Political Economy in the next year.

Martin Wolf wrote that The Entrepreneurial State offers “a controversial thesis,” but “it is basically right,” and warns that the “failure to recognise the role of the government in driving innovation may well be the greatest threat to rising prosperity.” Another critic stated that “it is one thing to legitimize the state as a driver of innovation and give credit where credit is due – something [Mazzucato’s] book does masterfully”, but “it is another thing altogether to craft effective innovation policy that deals with risk in a politically acceptable way.”


In 2012, Mazzucato was a member at UCL Green Economy Policy Commission as well as a member at Reinventing BIS Review. She joined the task force at New Economic Foundation between 2012 and 2013, and European Commission (EC) Task Force on Public Sector Innovation between 2012 and 2014. From 2013 to 2014, she was a commissioner at Centre for European Reform. She was a member of World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on the Economics of Innovation from 2014 to 2016. She was also a member of the European Commission’s expert group on Innovation for Growth (RISE). from 2013 to 2015. Between 2015 and 2016, she was appointed to the British Labour Party’s Economic Advisory Committee, convened by Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell and reporting to Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn.

In 2012, Mazzucato became a trustee at Green Alliance. In 2013, she joined the Advisory Board at UNU-MERIT and the Scientific Advisory Board at Lund University. She also joined the Advisory Board in Political Economy Research Centre at Goldsmiths University in 2014. She joined the Advisory Board at Sitra – The Finnish Innovation Fund Meanwhile, she joined the Institute for Public Policy Research as a trustee. Since 2016, she has been Vice President at International Schumpeter Society. She also joined the Advisory Board at Danish Design Centre and i24C High Level Group. Since 2017, she has joined the Advisory Board at Research Council of Norway.

She has also focused on inequality in her work with William Lazonick (Professor and Director of the University of Massachusetts Center for Industrial Competitiveness). Their joint article, “The Risk-Reward Nexus: Who takes the risks? Who gets the rewards?” for a special issue of Corporate and Industrial Change, edited by Mazzucato, describes the tension between how value is created and how value is extracted in modern-day capitalism. The authors argue that there is a disproportionate balance between the ‘collective’ distribution of risk taking in the innovation process, and the increasingly narrow distribution of the rewards. The paper was first published in a 2012 paper for the think tank Policy Network.


From 2004 to 2008, Mazzucato was the director of research in the Department of Economics at The Open University. She was also the founder/director of their Innovation, Knowledge and Development research centre between 2004 and 2009. From 2009 to 2012, she was the coordinator of a three-year European Commission Framework Programmes 7 project on finance, innovation and growth, FINNOV.

She then joined the Economics Department of The Open University as a lecturer, becoming a full professor in 2005, where she founded and directed the Innovation, Knowledge and Development research centre. From 2008 to 2010 she was a visiting professor at Bocconi University. From 2010 to 2013, she was a distinguished visiting professor at the University of Edinburgh. In 2014, she was a distinguished visiting professor at the University of Technology Sydney.
