“The New Economics Series” was launched with a lecture from Mariana Mazzucato


The Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell introduced a lecture delivered by Mariana Mazzucato, RM Phillips Professor in the Economics of Innovation, on “Economic Policy: from market fixing to market creating and shaping” to a packed audience at The Royal Institution last night. Mariana followed her lecture with an extensive question and answer session.

This lecture was part of a series of public events to broaden the debate around economics in Britain. John said “I am delighted to have some of the brightest minds in economics sharing their thoughts about how we can build an economy fit for the future.”

“On the most pressing issues of the day – for example, how to tackle inequality, the role of innovation and the future of the workplace – Labour will be listening to what is being said while we put together our own proposals.

“These meetings are an important first step on the path to reshaping the economic debate in the country, and getting away from it being a Westminster dominated view of economics.”

    This is excellent. I particularly enjoyed Mariana Mazzucato and her recent contribution on CH 4 news. Austerity and cuts are an absurdity and have delayed recovery and not addressed the top priority which is to build a 21st Century British economy, Osborne has got away with economic illiteracy and grossly misleading the public.This needs to be exoposed. http://www.brucenixon.com/index.html
