Kevin Carson. On Capital, Maps, and Terrain. November 1st, 2023. На днях я наткнулся на скрин этого классического старого твита Артура Чи: Каждый раз, когда такое высказывание появляется в социальных сетях, оно неизбежно вызывает огромное количество отзывов типа «рабочие не смогли бы ничего сделать, если бы им пришлось самостоятельно изготавливать запчасти и орудия труда.» К…
On Capital, Maps, and Terrain
I recently stumbled across a screenshot of this classic old tweet from Arthur Chu: Whenever such an observation appears on social media, it inevitably provokes a storm of responses along the lines of “workers wouldn’t be able to make anything if they had to make their own parts and tools.” For example, as part of…
Bargaining Power and Prices: A Response to Sanyazi and Carson
In a way, the theory of supply and demand explains prices. But in another, more accurate way, bargaining theory explains prices.  The idea that the prices of commodities are determined by the bargaining power of the buying and selling parties is not new, having been raised in the nineteenth century, but it does not play…
Железный кулак за невидимой рукой
Kevin Carson, The Iron Fist Behind the Invisible Hand. Перевёл Citizen Ilya. Вступление Обычно считается, что манориализм был основан на грабеже и узурпации; правящий класс утвердился силой, а затем заставил крестьянство работать на благо своих господ.

​​On Liberated Zones Theory: Or How BIPOC Folks Are Already Doing the Work
I have previously pointed out that the on-the-ground efforts in Rojava and Cooperation Jackson in Mississippi can be seen as… attempting, as Wesley Morgan describes, “to create ‘dual power’ through the creation of cooperatives.” Morgan disapprovingly terms this “market syndicalism” and critiques it for simply creating “units in a market economy” and still relying “upon…
