For anyone interested or knowledgeable...
Many people, Marxists and others, contend that choosing labor as the commodity in which value is extracted was arbitrary on Marx's part. I myself have no definitive answer, however I do not see why capital or natural resources cannot be bought at their value and, through consumption of their use vales, have extracted from them more value than their worth. I do hold, however, that profit must be extracted from a commodity within the M-C-M' cycle. Anyone have any ideas?
