    Makes sense. I dated a girl a few years ago who legitimately hated jewelry. But she was kind of a serious 'abolish the wage system' type of communist.

    She didn't march or shout or anything (she was actually really shy and quiet) but she thought conspicuous consumption was dumb.

    Do you know much about economics?

    Because I've been told that Labor Theory is pretty shit wrong, but it wasn't sufficiently explained to me why.

    I need someone to learn me a thing.

    Because I'm pretty attracted to some traditional marxist stuff, but it's mixed up with economics that look right, but I don't know much about economics.

    LTV for philosophers, eh.

    the most awkward thing about the LTV is that the tendency for the rate of profit to fall doesn't seem to have actually happened. here there is both much empirical and theoretical discussion, in particular over Okishio's theorem.

    it is fascinating reading - Wikipedia is actually a good place to start; next is Kliman's contemporary defences of the TRPF and rebuttals.

    (And then you take a pen and work through the Solow growth model like a lazy undergraduate, or even the Ramsey overlapping-generations model, and then you wonder what the fuss is all about. No, seriously, do it. Non-mathematical analysis invoking Marxist theories of capital tend to implicitly assume a stupid version of the TRPF, where the tendency arises through a positive rate of return on capital necessitating a permanent expansion of capital (!!!!). This is seductive to the mathematically illiterate layman, but it is wrong wrong wrong. And then you can readily observe that the mathematically rigorous version of the TRPF is much more fragile than standard neoclassical exogenous growth approaches. Note that both then need add-ons to match empirics; the point is the theoretical robustness of intuition)

    On the LTV specifically, there are two traps. It important to distinguish between those Marxists that treat it as a different set of terms for the same underlying phenomenon as the standard neoclassical school, and those that treat it as a theory with different implications (for whatever reason). The latter tends to be defined in an evasive, hard-to-pin-down manner.

    Secondly, it is important to avoid the error of, in the great CR Shalizi's words, 'trying to explain a variable with a constant'. That is to say, if you want to explain a trend, or worse, a cycle (like, say, crises of capitalism), you had better come up with mechanism that also varies over time. If it is a cycle that allegedly gets worse, you also have to identify the mechanism of positive feedback! This is something which the analytical Marxist school tries to tackle; IMO not very well - the school seems to have utterly given up on the positive feedback, and only grudgingly argues for a fragile capital order rather than an intrinsically self-destabilizing one. The result is, as Delong observed a while ago, that alleged Marxists start writing stuff that is not very different from the reactionary doomsaying you get pouring out of the WSJ editorial page.

    I was stumped by two python problems earlier

    one I completed with chu's help, although I don't really understand the answer

    the other I don't really know how to tackle

    however, I successfully completed an additional two problems tonight

    so I feel kinda better about it now

    and welcome back to "Who's the Lamest?", with your host, Doug Qwolf

    last time we left you on a cliffhanger - who would be considered the lamest?

    would it be LoserForHireX, the hometown favourite

    or Shivahn, the rising newcomer in the featherweight Lame League

    these two are going to meet head to head

    and only one can be crowned the Lord of Lame

    the winner - and loser - will be revealed right after this word from our sponsor

    the prince guy being evil is as disappointing as it was predictable

    like it doesn't really match his behavior up until then

    and it was nice to have a story where the girl's sorta realizing that her fiancee is a nice guy but maybe she rushed into this all too fast, without giving her an easy get-out-of-love free card
