„This historical and institutional view of markets‘ relationship with government contrasts sharply with the current prevailing orthodoxy and is not to be found in mainstream economics. But government is totally missing from what in microeconomics is known as the ‚production function‘: the relationship between the quantity of outputs of a good and the quantity of inputs needed to make it, or, to put it simply, the analysis of how firms behave. And thus it is assumed that it is only in firms that value is created. Government is left outside the productive boundary.“

– Mariana Mazzucato in „The Value of Everything – Making and Taking in the Global Economy“ 2018, Seite 232
