From the standpoint of F&M s analysis they assume a fully capitalist economy and are only interested in the wage/profit share within the capitalist sector of the economy. Thus the proportion of small farmers, small shopkeepers etc, whilst they affect wage share of the national income do not affect the wage to profit share. Thus the issue of the share of the wage workers in total population is not germane. gerald_a_levy wrote: > > Paul C wrote: > > > As a share of the national income yes. > > Wasn't that what we were talking about? > > If the size of the (wage-) working population is a crucial > variable in determining the wage share of national income, > we should be talking about the determinants of the size > of the (wage-) working population. > > In solidarity, Jerry > > > Paul C: It seems to me that the *size of the (wage-) working > > population* as a percent of the total population must, from > > a theoretical and historical perspective, be a crucial variable > > in determining the wage share of national income.
