The European Investment Bank is fundamental in an era of financialisation: Interview with Mariana Mazzucato

It’s time to stop bashing the public sector and start enabling public institutions to achieve their full potential in global innovation. This is the overriding message of world-class economist Mariana Mazzucato in an interview with the EIB. The University of Sussex professor visited the EIB on 8 March 2016 to discuss "The Entrepreneurial State and the Role of Public Banks".

Professor Mazzucato shared her thoughts on the role that public institutions can play in fostering innovation with long-term finance. To ensure the survival of the EU, she urged the need for an innovation-led investment strategy, with the EIB assuming a central role. In addition, Mazzucato underlined the EU bank’s role as the global leader in market-relevant climate finance. Green growth offers immense potential for innovation, and public banks have a leading role to play in forging development in this area.

European Investment Bank - Economic Diplomacy and Foreign Policy: Friends or Foes?

This video provides a recap of an event hosted by the European Political Strategy Centreentitled "Economic Diplomacy and Foreign Policy: Friends or Foes" on 24 February 2016. The event took place as the Commission is preparing to present its proposal later this year for a mid-term review of the EIB's external lending mandate. Speaking to an audience of businessmen and EU diplomats that included European Comission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, EIB President Werner Hoyer took the opportunity to call for an end to the "artificial division" that limits EIB activity outside the EU to 10 percent of its total business volume. “By moving from grants and subsidies to loans and guarantees, we are indirectly increasing the value and amount of public involvement into the economy, and making a fundamental paradigm shift in the use of EU public funds - away from grants and subsidies in favour of loans and guarantees. […] We need a Juncker Plan for outside the EU because all our challenges cannot be met with just public money."
