    I think markets are an integral part of any society. The real question is, will the mode of production be characterised by cooperation or throat cutting?

  2. charliemarks Says:

    I agree, but it’s more historically correct to say that exchange is an integral part of any society – before money and markets, goods and services were paid for directly with other goods and services.

  3. Daniel Owen Says:

    Bartering is still a market though.

  4. charliemarks Says:

    True. But the distance between what we understand as bartering and market exchange is so great as to require differentiation for the sake of clarity.

  5. Daniel Owen Says:

    Maybe amongst us politicos… The fact remains that there is no evidence that distribution can take place except thru a market. This is something most people are aware of, except some of us socialist politico types!

  6. Derek Wall Says:

    take a look at Karl Polanyi the research shows that markets are relatively unimportant in human history
