There must be -and there are- lots of reasons. But I think that the
main one lies in the indestructible link between variable capital and
realization of capital in a self-centered, fully developed capitalist
economy. Wages in such an economy cannot fall down below a certain
limit (which must be determined in every moment) because this
downfall puts in jeopardy the process of accumulation and realization
and generates a crisis.

A fraction of the bourgeoisie may well propose that the gates be
opened up, such as Carrol has commented, but the bourgeoisie _as a
whole_  cannot unless it decides to commit suicide.
