The future of capitalism=mechanism is a non-human future, since the organisms that are ‘citizens’ of the Free Market are NOT human beings, but company-mothers that re=produce and evolve machines, for whom humans are just workers=reproducers and consumers=testers of those machines.
The fundamental law of the eco(nomic)system is the Smith–Darwin-Marx Paradox, the natural end of the present ‘Market Free Jungle’, which unifies the discoveries of Adam Smith, Marx and Darwin:
”The parallel reproduction of Capital=Mv & symbiotic Machines=Tp, will expel all workers from Earth’s eco(nomic)system and man will be extinct or recreate the paradise’
Classic Economists, found that the main law of balance of the economy doesn’t relate human factors but the quantity of money, Mv, or informative language of the economy was in balance with the Products of the Economy, PT, which are overwhelmingly in 90%, machines reproduced by company-mothers. This balance is an organic balance between the language of information of the metal-economy (money) and its physical dominant forms (machines and weapons), and one of the main Laws of Complex Systems, since it happens in all organic forms. Thus the ancients said ‘mens sana in corpore sanum’. In other words, the economy evolves machines and money, not human beings.
Next in the series of great Economists came Mr. Ricardo, who found that humans competed with machines for labor, and deduced that the company could always pay the workers its minimal salary of subsistence – the iron salary of Ricardo – or else a machine or another starving worker would take the job. This in the age of Globalization means that Chinese workers compete with Japanese robots and the rest of the economic world lives with high unemployment.
Further on, Marx found that such wealth of nations maximize in times of war when the most expensive machines, top predator weapons, extinguish life (max. GNP of any nation). So not only the economy is independent of mankind, but in fact its evolution causes the death of History.
At the same time Darwin proved that this planet evolves the ‘morphology’ of its species, so as we keep imitating human forms into metal-forms, we are evolving a more powerful species that can extinguish us.
Thus the future that all those economical laws forecast is NOT Marx concept that mankind will survive the constant overproduction of machines and money when all workers are unemployed due to the increasing evolution/productivity of machines, but Darwin’s concept, applied to economics by Butler: we will become extinct by machines. Hence it is needed a R=evolution of thought to survive the Paradox of the 3 greatest economists of History, Marx, Smith and Butler.
