Das Kapital des Staates

Eine andere Geschichte von Innovation und Wachstum

Freie Märkte, smarte junge Erfinder und Wagniskapital treiben die Wirtschaft voran; der Staat stört dabei nur und muss daher nach Kräften zurückgedrängt werden. Wie ein Mantra wird dieser oberste Glaubensartikel des Neoliberalismus seit Jahrzehnten wiederholt – aber stimmt er auch? Die Ökonomin Mariana Mazzucato, die seit Jahren über den Zusammenhang zwischen Innovation und Wachstum forscht, beweist das Gegenteil: Wann und wo immer technologische Innovationen zu wirtschaftlichem Aufschwung und Wohlstand geführt haben, hatte ein aktiver Staat die Hand im Spiel. Von der Elektrifizierung bis zum Internet – Motor der Entwicklung, oft bis zur Markteinführung, war stets der Staat. Apples Welterfolg gründet auf Technologien, die sämtlich durch die öffentliche Hand gefördert wurden; innovative Medikamente, für die die Pharmaindustrie ihren Kunden gern hohe Entwicklungskosten in Rechnung stellt, stammen fast ausnahmslos aus staatlicher Forschung. Innovationen und nachhaltiges Wachstum, das derzeit alle fordern, werden also kaum von der Börse kommen. Viel eher von einem Staat, der seine angestammte Rolle neu besetzt, sein einzigartiges Kapital nutzt und mit langem Atem Zukunftstechnologien wie den Ausbau erneuerbarer Energien vorantreibt. Ein brandaktuelles Buch, das die aktuelle Diskussion über die Zukunft der Wirtschaft und die Rolle des Staates vom Kopf auf die Füße stellt.

Dieser leidenschaftliche Roman folgt seinen Hauptgestalten durch den Wirbel der politischen und gesellschaftlichen Veränderung in Südafrika. Er zählt zu den kraftvollsten Werken Nadine Gordimers, Vera Stark zu ihren bleibenden Schöpfungen. Dies ist das Südafrika des Umbruchs. Die Apartheid ist aufgehoben und das Land bereitet sich auf die Machtübernahme der schwarzen Mehrheit vor. Vera Stark ist Juristin. Sie arbeitet in einer Stiftung, die seit Jahren versucht hat, willkürliche Umsiedlungen schwarzer Gemeinden zu verhindern. Die Ehe Vera Starks gilt als sehr glücklich, ihr Mann, der früher als Künstler gearbeitet hat, ist Unternehmer geworden, um seiner Frau eine gesicherte Zukunft bieten zu können. Aber gerade dieses Sicherheitsdenken untergräbt seine Beziehung zu Vera, die sich immer stärker in die Politik des neuen Südafrika hineinziehen lässt, fasziniert vom Neubeginn des Landes und dem Mann, Zeph Rapulana, der für sie diesen neuen Anfang verkörpert. Fast instinktiv versucht auch sie sich von jeder Fessel der Vergangenheit zu befreien - selbst wenn dieser Weg in die Eingenständigkeit zugleich der Weg in die Einsamkeit ist.
