In class we discussed how cultural, political, economic, and natural processes influence the outcome of the economy. These processes are first initiated by Marxists to better grasp the ever-changing economy. The theory goes that all the aforementioned processes combine to overdetermine the economy. In other words every process affects another process in which the affected process affects the initial process. If this is so, then are Marxists defining factors that influence economy? If Marxists analyze in this way, aren't they contradicting themselves when they say that there are no categories that can explain economy---it is the sum total of all changes and contradictions in society?
