But in the production race, with many isolated producers, and buyers and sellers, its impossible to exactly meet demand.

With not meeting the demand do you mean overproduction? Is overproduction the only case where commodities are sold at a price lower than their production costs?


I don’t think information on the market is what Marx had in mind when writing this. Also, how does a company not know how much it is paying for the production of their goods?


Of course, demand for products, and the price people are willing to pay for them, fluctuates regardless of how much they cost to produce.

But wouldn’t it be more profitable to stop producing until supply decreases or demand increases and just throw away/sell/store the stock that has already been produced? Why would a company continue selling a commodity if it means losing capital?


How does the price of commodity fluctuate around its cost of production, if selling anything below it would be a loss of profit?

I’m reading Marx’s Wage Labour and Capital and it is said in the chapter «By what is the price of a commodity determined?» this:

We have just seen how the fluctuation of supply and demand always bring the price of a commodity back to its cost of production. The actual price of a commodity, indee…

I have an idea: If URL shortners and mirrors do not work, how about enciphering the address in some easy cypher like ROT-13 (explicitly pointing out to that fact and giving a website of which there a dozens to decipher quickly). That’s a common practice to hide emails posted in public from web crawlers, to avoid receiving spam. This only protects from automatic removals and doesn’t hide it from anticommunists however, it still being possible to be censored if someone reports it. One may have to change the cipher if some platforms start remembering the enciphered address.


Huh. Weird. I actually noticed the same error on a different channel and I was told it was because my homeserver didn’t know how to connect to it. Changing it fixed the problem I had on the second channel, but I didn’t try to connect to this one again. So I guess by trying to fix a non existent problem you fixed one that did indeed exist.


Pardon me. I obviously meant Tor browser and I am aware that «Tor» and «Tor browser» are two different things. I devoured the word «Browser» for the same reason some people say «Photo» rather than «Photograph», but in this case, it had the disadvantage of adding ambiguity, context needing to be taken into account to discern the real meaning.


That would definitely be great, but I think something that may be problematic is the fact that one needs JS to use Lemmy, since many who use Tor are not really fond of JS. (at least I think it needs JS, since I tried deactivating JS on an instance and it told me it needs JS for actions)


I cannot join for some reason. I get «Unable to join room. No known servers». Is it still being used?
