Debunking “Anarcho”-Communism. Patrick Smith and Keith Knight

by | Sep 16, 2020


Böhm-Bawerk’s devastating refutation of the … Marxian system remains defi nitive. It swept the boards in professional economics, and has remained dominant ever since, successfully inoculating economists, at least, against the Marxian virus, and certainly against the labor theory of value. …


Böhm-Bawerk, in sum, posed the grave inner contradiction of Marxian theory plainly and starkly: Marx claimed that goods exchanged on the market in proportion to the quantities of labor embodied in them (i.e., that their values are determined by the quantity of labor-hours needed to produce them), and yet also conceded that the rates of profit on all goods tended to be equal. And yet, if the first clause is true, the rates of profit would be systematically lower in proportion to the intensity of capital investment, and higher in proportion to their labor-intensiveness of production.


Murray N. Rothbard
Classical Economics, p. 414
