ECIPE Webinar: Industrial Policy and the Entrepreneurial State – Facts and Fiction

May 12 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Karl Wennberg
Time: 14:00

Do bureaucrats or markets drive innovation?

In the past decades, there has been a flurry of initiatives by governments to support strategic technologies and innovation. For some, the industrial history of the West is full of examples of governments creating business success by hands-on innovation policies and industrial investments – and that sentiment is now propping up new plans in Brussels and Washington for industrial policies. But is this account of economic history and policy success true? What do we know from research about the effectiveness of innovation and industrial policies? What can governments do to create better conditions for innovation-led growth? Join us for a discussion with professor Karl Wennberg.
