In Reply to: Economic process vs. class process posted by Esa on November 12, 2002 at 23:31:03:
Heres what I have in my notes: Economic process is any process that involves the production, distribution, or circulation of products and services. Class process is a subset of economic processes. Class process is the process where a surplus is produced, appropriated, and then distributed. In the last class it was said that the first question we have to ask to see if there is a class process is whether or not there is a surplus. If there is no surplus, then there is no class process but you could still have an economic process. Buying and selling is not a class process, but it is an economic process. I guess stealing is also an economic process but not a class process because it involves the distribution of products. Is that right?
