Interesting interview on UK radio with Mariana Mazzucato auther of the book The Entrepreneurial State, regarding Goverment funding and how companies should announce the support they receive!

In her interview she mentions that Elon Musk received $5 billion goverment funding for his thre ventures Solar, Tesla and SpaceX of which $465 million was guarenteed if he defaulted and would be paid by the US tax payer.

Interesting facts and maybe highlights the support goverment give towards innovation and is not always know if the companies dont mention it to the public.
