In Reply to: Neoclassical theory and the idea of hard work posted by Jessica on October 15, 2001 at 22:00:39:
: I'm getting the feeling that the Neoclassical theory is being linked with the idea of hard work. I dont necessarily think that is completly true. From what I understand the neoclassical theory simply states that all humans are going to make the desicion that will produce the greatest good for them. For example, someone living in a cardboard box, might have very well choosen to live there. For them the material was not that important, and they have decided that for them, what produces the greatest happiness is to simply do as little work as possible. For others what might make them happy is to work for someone else for their entire lives. For others still it might just be to have people working for them, and they would intern receive the profits.
: My point though is that I dont think that the neoclassical theory is stating that in other to have a capitalist system you have to do hard work.
: I dont feel like those 2 concepts, that of hard work and the neoclassical theory, are linked to one another.
