Tyler Cowen — Lunch with Mariana Mazzucato‚

Mariana Mazzucato (short bio) who writes on innovation and government investment, impresses even Tyler, which is surprising since her hit book is entitle, The Entrepreneurial State (2013).
She also has four children and I can testify she is what they call “a commanding presence.” In Singapore not long ago I told her she should have her own TV show, and I would not be surprised if this someday came to pass.
I'm sure that Tyler Cowen has his reservations though. Tim Worstall expresses his in The Intellectual Hole At The Heart Of Mariana Mazzucato's "Entrepreneurial State" at Forbes. She responds in 
Mariana Mazzucato Responds To Tim Worstall, in which Warstall replies.

She has also been collaborating with Randy Wray on financing investment.

From the website:
"When economists estimate the welfare losses from immigration restrictions, they tend to conclude that eliminating immigration restrictions would double world product. "
Some other stuff on the site is really crazy.
