Ultimately, it seems to me unreasonable that capital could in any
way "overcome" the law of surplus value. All economy rests on a positive
form of checks and balances : The balances don't tilt unless the checks come
in (I couldn't resist, but seriously....). Current estimates of worker
productivity must take into account the infrastructure created by previous
generations of workers - which is the birthright of the modern proletariat.
That birthright also includes legal control through ownership of all capital.
Legal control is every bit as important as derived economic benefit.
Contradiction surely endures.
