Readers of this blog will know that I'm not a fan of Mariana Mazzucato's Entrepreneurial State.
But suppose I had to write that book, arguing the same thing Mazzucato argues. How would it look like? It would be something like a mixture of two existing sources:
- The first is Josh Lerner's Boulevard of Broken Dreams: Why public efforts to boost entrepreneurship and venture capital have failed, and what do to about it (2009).
- NESTA report How Innovation Agencies Work (2016)

How is the best book, paper or article which refutes the Mariana Mazzucato’s Entrepreneurial State?

My own posts, available here under Science, Technology... https://artir.wordpress.com/series-de-articulos/
This also includes a very good critique by Alberto Mingardi, and a summary of every other critique.

Thx, do you know some paper/book/article that advocates for the free trade? A book which refutes the "infant industry argument" and show the trade history in the 19th century?
sorry if my english is bad, i'm brazilian.
*"What", instead of "How is the best book..."

I don't have a good source for that but this http://eh.net/book_reviews/kicking-away-the-ladder-development-strategy-in-historical-perspective/ and this http://press.princeton.edu/titles/10486.html and this https://www.amazon.com/Against-Tide-Intellectual-History-Trade/dp/0691011389?ie=UTF8&ref_=asap_bc may be helpful
