I would strongly encourage comrades to read this article.
Obviously the figures used and the ratio itself are not based on Marxist
categories. But it would be great to hear from folks like Michael Roberts,
Shaikh and Tonak etc. about how the author's "Marx ratio" can be used to
illustrate what rates of profit and surplus value really are.
I would also encourage comrades to use its search field to find other
companies' ratios. One can easily imagine workers in a particular industry
playing with tools like this for purposes of comparative exploitation
discussions.
