Capital Volume I

  • “A commodity appears, at first sight, a very trivial thing, and easily understood. Its analysis shows that it is, in reality, a very queer thing, abounding in metaphysical subtleties and theological niceties. ”

    Karl Marx

  • “As exchange-values, all commodities are merely definite quantities of congealed labour-time.”

    Karl Marx

  • “What exclusively determines the magnitude of the value of any article is therefore the amount of labour socially necessary, or the labour-time socially necessary for its production.”

    Karl Marx
