Dysfunctions … occur when we don’t debate value — when [value is] just presented as “this is how the economy works.” So it becomes very easy for some actors in the economy to present themselves as value creators, and in the process extract value, because the difference — what’s value creation, what’s value extraction — is no longer part of the way we think about the economy. Because as long as something has a price, it’s considered valuable. And if it doesn’t have a price, like caring for the sick or elderly or public education, it’s not valued or measured properly.
