CHINA CURRENT RATE OF PROFIT and US retail data filled with false positives.

Chinese GDP data was released shortly. GDP at 4.9% for Q3 came in below expectations of 5.2% and represented a mere 0.2% increase on Q2. The only data point to beat expectations was retail sales but that was to be expected when ‘official’ RPI data came in at a paltry 0.7% for September.

WILL THERE BE A SEVERE CORRECTION OR EVEN A STOCK MARKET CRASH THIS OCTOBER?

HARMONISING TRANSFORMATION WITH REPRODUCTION. Solving the transformation problem.

Alongside the Draft 20th Century Programme, I consider this article of the utmost importance, because it answers the criticisms levelled at Chapter 9 in Volume 3, and the Reproduction Series in Volume 2 as a whole. It shows what competition effects blindly, can be also be modelled consciously.

MAKING THE LAW OF VALUE BULLET PROOF. Harmonizing transformation with reproduction.

It was said that once values were transformed into prices, Marx’s Reproduction Schema collapsed due to disproportions. This article shows this not to be true provided the correct assumptions emerge. In addition, in my earlier articles on the Transformation Problem it was unclear whether the amount of surplus value being transferred was a single transfer or a double transfer. That error of omission is cleared up by this article. Thus this article should be read in conjunction with the article titled: Comprehensive Update to the Transformation Problem.
