Captain America portrayed as killing American soldiers in new, Vietnam-era comic book

Sraffian economics is interesting but unsuited to model modern contemporary corporate behavior.

The fundamental idea that prices are set by production costs, not as traditional economics would have as supply and demand may generally be reasonable. But it’s subsistence model, any market can be measured this year on its tendency towards producing what it produced the year earlier is relatively limited.

Corporations that produce what they did the year before will be valued less; external valuators drive the behavior that a corporation must produce more than it did before, even if it doesn’t need to or can’t, because of the perception of comparative value imposed on them by corporate shareholders; if corporations aren’t growing dividend, then investors will move elsewhere.

But the whole thing is a Ponsi scheme: there is a hard limit to how many Five Guys Burgers a town needs, intersections only have four corners to stick competing gas stations and convenience stores. About the only thing seemingly without limit is Americans’ waistlines, though.
