Re Patrick's [OPE-L:3272]:

You imply that cyborgs in a Star Trek world who can perform the job of economists are productive of surplus value.

This leads me to ask: do you think that economists in *contemporary capitalism* who are employed by capital (as economists, rather than as instructors teaching economics) are productive of surplus value?

In solidarity, Jerry
