Q: > What 'products' are produced by the clown industry?

Hi Paula:
A: Entertainment.
Entertainment just doesn't 'happen' in this case: it is produced
by the labor of clowns and the circus. It is productive labor
to the extent that it is wage-labor employed by a capitalist
firm engaged in production.
Unlike some other sectors, the entertainment isn't paid out of
revenues, it doesn't represent merely a transfer of surplus-value
among capitalists, and it doesn't only concern the legal title to
wealth and surplus value.
In solidarity, Jerry
