In the overdue 19th century, liberals exulted that the unfold of overseas trade could herald prosperity and peace. An period of financial interdependence, they believed, could render wars too expensive to salary. yet those goals have been dashed through the carnage of 1914–1918. looking the security of financial self-sufficiency, countries grew to become first to protectionism after which to territorial enlargement within the 1930s—leading back to devastating clash.

515). The whole idea of rent equalization is based on an elementary confusion. If land is a factor of production, then rent per unit of surface is the price for its services. Since land is not homogeneous, the differences in quality are measured by differential rents. That much already Ricardo knew. No amount of competition will equalize differential rents. An escape route is to consider only margins. Thus, Samuelson in his first article (1948) compares marginal physical products. This procedure raises at least three questions.

Thus, an important feature of real economic processes is lost. Systemic synchronization reveals that a changing economy displays Diachronic vs Synchronic Labour Input 41 two important dynamic effects, which I call the employment effect and the replacement effect. The former determines the rate of interest even when output per capita remains constant; the latter determines fixed capital cost. Both of them are of considerable theoretical and practical importance. They are best analysed within the framework of the corrected labour theory of value.

By the time output is delivered in year two, it will expand to G2. In year one labour input in the same process is also 1, and since it is frozen in the production only one year, by the time B is delivered it will have expanded to G. For this reason, while diachronic labour costs are two labour units, the synchronic costs amount to G ϩ G 2 ϭ G(1 ϩ G) labour units. The rate g plays the role of interest rate. No fixed assets are around and so this time interest is generated by the growth of labour.
