    Totally on point with yesterday's lecture - all the news in today's paper about the FAA sponsored work on drones, wondering if Amazon will pay for its intended use ----

    Interesting new article about Arpa-e, Envia, GM which is right in line with the topic from last night.

    Dr. Mazzucato was engaging and thought provoking in this lecture. She clearly demonstrated how some government spending can be productive and even vital for the economy. Even the 6% of the SME's can benefit from these programs. Great evening, I can't wait to get started on her book.

    Dr. Mazzucato is a terrific speaker. Her talk (and her book) are thought-provoking.

    This is not just about financing innovation. It's about revamping the banking sector with public banking, an idea that has worked wonders in very few places inside this country yet with outstanding results. this is one way to finally rid ourselves of the booms and the busts.
