A top-down planning – by the Government – of the Market (and, more particularly, of Innovation) is perhaps possible in the Incremental development moments of the Society.
But surely it is not possible in moments of disruption (of “Revolution”), in which it is necessary to develop New Things. This is because in such moments of radical change of things:
1) the New Things that cannot be conceived by those who belong to the Culture before the “Revolution” (of the Incumbents)
2) nor the people who work for Incumbents institutions (big players in the market, Government) are able to choose people who are able to develop real disruptive innovation.
Continue to plan top-down innovation strategies
does nothing but worsen the ongoing crisis,
since this creates:
● AN IMPOVERISHMENT OF CITIZENS (thus worsening the sales crisis in the market): the sales crisis is due, among other things, to reduced spending due to the increase in taxes in recent years. The new “investments” of the Public Administration for innovation lead to an increase in taxes and tariffs for public services.
● EXCLUSION FROM THE MARKET OF POTENTIAL INNOVATORS: due to these institutional plans, investors focus on activities financed by the public administration, and the top-down pseudo-innovators chosen occupy the spaces that could be occupied by truly innovative startups.
