Then thinking economists will have to become
non-thinking economists! Let's suppose I bought a
Picaso painting 10 years ago for 1 million dollars and
sell it today for 10 millions. Where did the surplus
labor come into Picaso's painting that I was keepin in
a locker in a bank? First tell me what, according to
you, would be Marx's answer since I presume we are
talking about Marx's concept of surplus labor. Then
you could tell me what would be your answer if you
disagree with Marx's answer. Cheers, ajit sinha
