    Description

    The Value of Everything argues that American companies have for too long been valued according to the amount of wealth they capture for themselves rather than for the value they create for the economy. In fact, Pfizer, Amazon, and other companies are actually dependent on public money, spend their resources on boosting share prices and executive pay, and reap ever-expanding rewards without offering the market value. 

    In her previous work, The Entrepreneurial State, Mariana Mazzucato argued that public investment has been the most significant driver of innovation and product development. The iPhone as it exists would not have been possible without government-sponsored technology like Siri and Touch ID. Yet Apple today, like numerous other companies, is engaging in a massive repurchase scheme, and for the first time has prioritized value-extraction practices such as spending to boost shareholder profit-the very initiatives that funded their software. If private companies continue down this path, they will succeed in diminishing the size of their largest and most successful investor - the state - and will destroy powerful opportunities, shrivel markets, and depress wealth.

    Unlistenable

    I am very interested in this book and Mariana's ideas but unfortunately this audiobook is unlistenable. The performance is robotic, auto-tuned and does not use vocal inflection to draw attention to important conceptual points. Disappointing.

    Enlightening and Hopeful Economic Ideas

    Coming more and more to appreciate the seemingly inescapable power of economies to shape the future destiny of humanity and the world, I wondered if and how they might be both shaped and unleashed as forces for the greater social good. Mazzucato masterfully journeys through the history of economic thought and theories of value, and reveals beautiful win-win public-private partnerships, both historical and contemporary, which together create incredible value for society, and lead to astonishing innovations (computers, internet, gps, materials science, artificial intelligence)... to name a few.

    Some fascinating takeaways for me:

    -Creating value involves everyone and everything in society, and societal determinations about what is valuable, is at the heart of Economics.

    -Economies are like biological ecosystems, full of symbiotic relationships, diverse and able to be shaped.

    -Adam Smith's idea of free markets meant, "free from rent seekers who extract, rather than help create, value."

    -The public sector, not VC or PE, has historically been the primary investor during the highest risk early phases of innovation, research and experimentation, taking technological developments to the point where they are viably successful, and then VC and PE can rapidly expand and bring those innovations to market. This vital contribution of society's visionary, explorative, and risk taking potential needs to be acknowledged, valued, and encouraged in healthy economies.

    -"After all, if we cannot dream of a better future, and try to make it happen, there is no real reason why we should care about value."

    Tons more to explore...well worth the listen~

    Just Okay

    Much of the book is dedicated to the history of economic thought which was a bit dry. Additionally, the self-stated reason for publishing the book was to spark thought about how we value things. This is all well and good, but it was an awfully long-winded way to say that GDP and market price are poor indicators of value created. Overall, the ideas are good, the writing is okay, but the book is just repeated ramblings.

    Important topic, but very biased analysis

    Important topic and several interesting perspectives and anecdotes. Unfortunately, the analysis is tainted by exaggerated arguments (even false*, or very inaccurate at best) and unsupported claims** arising from a negative bias to the financial sector.

    *Claims such as the FED/public did not get any return the bailout funds and "were happy to simply get its money back" is false. (Current profit is at $97bn - https://projects.propublica.org/bailout/) Also not sure where the figure of $125bn to bail out Goldman comes from. They did take up a TARP loan of $10bn - on same terms as loan from Warren Buffet, and for which the public earned $1.4bn in less than a year...

    ** It is repeatedly claimed that profit in banking and asset management is a result of monopolist margins. How such fragmented industries can be described as monopolies is hardly explained.

    Hard to listen

    This is a very dense book with complex ideas making it difficult to listen to as an audiobook. Its worth a read but I would recommend to just actually read it. Its too difficult to follow when listening

    Brain candy

    Very thoughtful book. But some critique is due :) There is too much emphasis on the bad morals of the financial sector rather than the rules shaping it. Development bank for long-term projects sounds nice but why not just subsides standard bank lending to make them happen? Rising rents during housing booms do increase GDP. But nominal not real. Almost all the effect would be accounted for by the GDP deflator. To sum up the book asks excellent questions but I am not sure that you win debate on this topic if you base your arguments on its content. Overall, highly recommended.

    Rethinking Value Added

    Great read that reminds us to really think about who adds value and when that value is added. Do job creators create jobs or do we get jobs based on the needs and problems of society? An even better question is value; where does it come from? This book gets the ready ready to answer that question. Hint, it does not come from the price.

    Good book- intolerable narration

    Important ideas and good historical context, but hard to overcome computer generated sound of the narrator- actually thought this the brave new world of audio books using a computer reader.

    A few good thoughts, not a must read for most people

    Lengthy at times, mechanical voice certainly didn’t help.
    A couple of very good thoughts, questions, and insights= 5 stars; unfortunately also a couple pf poor sections that appeared dogmatic, e.g. on share buybacks; I prefer Warren Buffett’s perspective on the topic. Other sections that were biased include drug pricing and venture capital.
    Pharmaceutical development and venture capitalism usually involve a lot of risk, hence, require a substantial reward in case of success. If failure is privatized, success cannot be socialized. The opposite holds true, as well.
    Overall, a qualified recommendation for people with this particular interest; I learned a few things on national accounting.
