TED - Mariana Mazzucato : Government -- investor, risk-taker, innovator - The BEST

I have been fond of saying big business, big government - what's the difference.  They both seem unmanageable but government is much more accountable (even though imperfect) and makes investments no matter your ideology that are important.  Big business on the other hand can do great harm by subverting governments and dumping costs of production on people - pollution (fracking) and causing recessions (derivatives) as two examples.

I also like her point about narratives - That they are just that and not always correct and they need to countered!  Speak UP!  Narratives seem to me to be like mob mentality - some body comes up with the spin and "television media" especially can't seem to exercise one neuron to actually think about whether it is reasonable!

As an example of "private enterprise" corrupting government -

N.C. wants to nix Duke Energy's $99,000 settlement for coal ash leaks
only after the big lie is discovered!

Government is really in the front seat !  Brought us the Internet !
