Teaser Tuesday – A Companion To Marx’s Capital


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week comes from David Harvey’s A Companion to Marx’s Capital, page 213:

But machines are commodities that have to be paid for.  Their value, therefore, has to circulate as constant capital during the machine’s lifetime.  If that lifetime is ten years, then one-tenth of the value of the machine ends up in the product every year.  But this imposes a limit-the depreciating value of the machine should be less than the value of the labor replaced by it.  This creates the possibility for uneven geographical development.

Please feel free to share yours below!
