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.

IMPERIALISM, DRIVEN BY THE FALL IN THE RATE OF PROFIT

This article looks at imperialism via the prism of Marx’s reproduction schema. Marx’s earlier tables in Volume 2 in the Sections on “Simple and Expanded Reproduction” have been turned into modern input-output tables which are easier to grasp. What they show is that the immediate cause of all economic crises together with the resulting intensification of competition, both nationally and internationally, is due to changes in the consumption of the economic surplus by the capitalist class as influenced by movements in the rate of profit which governs their consumption.
