How can one conceptualize the new ‘mission-oriented’ role assumed by national development banks (NDBs)? The standard ‘market failure’ perspective provides only a partial and limited justification for what NDBs do and does not explain historical and contemporary developments. This chapter combines insights from Keynes, Minsky, Schumpeter, and Polanyi (and works in their tradition) to review the old and new roles of NDBs. It discusses these roles taking into account two important dimensions: (i) the relationship between risks and rewards, and (ii) the criticisms that NDBs crowd out private investments. It shows that the roles typically performed by NDBs go beyond that of the state as ‘market fixer’ to assume that of market shaper and creator.
