The Exclave of Lemurian Outpost wrote:Capitalism is the economic system in which land and industry are privately owned, and where commodities are produced and sold on a market to generate surplus value (profit). It doesn't matter whether this is done by one-person enterprises or corporations employing thousands.


How is surplus value generated by a workforce made up entirely of one-person enterprises who own their own means of production?

"5 hours ago: The People's Republic of Slajov Zezek-ia arrived from The South Pacific."

More like "The *schniff* Schouth Paschific", am I right?

Surplus value is the difference between wages and the value of the commodity produced and sold on the market.

So, with a single producer, that line does seem more blurry on the surface since you're not paying out set wages. But, imagine you own a business whose net income is $5,000 dollars on a given month. You will use some of that for your own living expenses like rent, food, entertainment, etc. However, if you want to make more income the next month, you'll have to reinvest to buy more materials and tools to make more commodities to sell, and probably save some on top of that for a rainy day. What you have then is in effect your own wage for personal expenses (let's say you take $3,000 for such purposes), and a $2,000 in surplus value that you are compelled to extract from yourself in order to keep your business afloat.

And all this is of course ignoring the very real tendency for competition in the market to constantly to put inefficient petty producers out of business in favour of bigger enterprises that have a more efficient division of labour.

So the Turkish-backed opposition in Syria is now demanding that since Manbij (which the Syrian Democratic Forces spent two months capturing from the "Islamic State") is west of the Euphrates, which contradicts an earlier agreement that stipulated that the YPG would stay east, the SDF (not just the YPG, but also the FSA forces that work with them) must now withdraw from the city completely in three days.
They're demanding this after hundreds of SDF fighters, including the FSA hero Abu Layla, died to liberate the city.
I usually try to stay neutral in opposition-Kurdish fighting, but even I have to admit this is completely messed up.

I had no idea Abu Layla was dead.

Net income ($5,000) would be the difference between the cost of production ($2,000) and the price of the commodity produced and sold on the market (hence $7,000); the business costs would be recouped from from the output of the business, leaving the net income the same as the "wage".

Are such bigger enterprises necessarily capitalistic?

The Federation of Luckynia wrote:Are such bigger enterprises necessarily capitalistic?

Not necessarily, no. But that tends to be what the market produces in the real world. Usually small businesses become big businesses by expanding and hiring more people as employees, rather than offering newcomers equal joint-ownership.

Thank you for sharing this, it's an excellent article! I look forward to hearing about what more research in this area turns up.
