Economist Mariana Mazzucato: “I will argue that the way the word ‘value’ is 
used in modern economics has made it easier for value-extracting activities to 
masquerade as value-creating activities. And in the process rents (unearned 
income) gets confused with profits (earned income); inequality rises, and 
investment in the real economy falls.” 

Markets have always been shaped, Mazzucato notes. They can be reshaped now to 
better reflect and foster real value—creating a more sustainable and inclusive 

A professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University 
College London, where she founded and directs the Institute for Innovation and 
Public Purpose, Mariana Mazzucato is the author of The Value of Everything: 
Making and Taking in the Global Economy (02018) and of The Entrepreneurial 
State: Debunking Public vs. Private Sector Myths (02013).
