In his presentation he focused mainly on the state and its role in the innovation economy. Janeway points to post-War USA and modern day China to emphasise the importance of state investment in the innovation economy.
The state he claims has a number of advantages in relation to innovation. First, it can politically legitimise large scale investment in infrastructure. For example, massive highways across North America were commissioned in the s in order to accommodate military vehicles.
These highways in turn have often been described as vital in the shaping of the USA as a world industrial economic superpower Weingroff, Janeway therefore describes the job of the state as building a platform on which economic actors can dance.

Finally, she emphasised the prominence that Janeway gives to the technological era as a new innovation paradigm.
