In reply to Jerry, Chai-on writes (amid much else):

The use-value of labor-power consists in the ability to
create more value than its own value.

Michael W. asks:

Why is this the 'use-value', rather than usefulness, role, function or whatever
of labour-power? I ask, because it seems to have so many disanalogies with the
use-value of a commodity.

Comradely greetings,
