I forgot that Marx uses "capitalist mode of production" in the sense of
including property relations in the first sentence of _Capital_ Vol. I.


The wealth of those societies in which the capitalist mode of production
prevails, presents itself as "an immense accumulation of commodities," [1]
its unit being a single commodity. Our investigation must therefore begin
with the analysis of a commodity.
