In Micheal Perelman's book the Perverse Economy, he quotes Adam Smith's "farm
worker paradox". While he solves the diamond-water paradox, I do not remember him
attempting to explain the farm worker paradox. I apologize if I simply missed
Does anyone on this list think they
have the answer? I think the "paradox" has an obvious solution as far as capitalists
are concerned. What about wage differentials between workers?
Here's my attempt -
1. The unequal structure of demand for various kinds of labor
2. Bargaining power - the inherent structure if the capitalist labor market
3. Social control - the cultural and institutional imperatives of capital
4. Different profit rares and accidental factors
