Even if simple commodity production is demographically in large scale =

t undeveloped countries in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s), it is irreversibly=20
under the capitalist mode. Then, the latter must be the dominant.

This is too teleological for me. It uses an as yet unattained future
to define the present.

More surplus goes to the dominant mode of production from the dominated =
mode of production. Thus, the latter is to deteriorate in the course of =
time. Electronic sector is dominant not because it occupies the largest =
share of GDP but because it absorbes the surplus value above and beyond =
the social average. Imagine a underdeveloped economy which has an =
infant electronic sector. =20
