Interesting perspective on Mariana Mazzucato's book The Entrepreneurial State.

I called it right

Time for some credit-claiming. In 2011 I predicted that immigration would become a live issue in relation to the EU: "there will be increasing pressure to pull up the drawbridges". Yup.

In the interests of balance I should report a couple of verbal predictions that didn't go so well; earlier this year, "don't buy bitcoin until it falls to $20". At the time bitcoin was $100. Sorry, bruv. And, some time in 1996, "this internet thing isn't going to be that important".
