If the rates of increase of labor and capital productivity depend on the relative shares of labor and capital in the costs of production, there is a powerful feedback mechanism linking distribution to productivity increases. If the wage share, for example, rises, the rate of increase of labor productivity would also rise, tending to reduce the demand for labor and putting downward pressure on the level of wages. This feedback would act as a kind of social thermostat to stabilize the wage share at the level at which the induced increase in capital productivity is close to zero, which is a necessary condition for a stable relationship between accumulation and growth of the labor force.
In the earlier phase of his study of economics he adopted a version of Malthus’ and Ricardo’s theory of the subsistence wage. In conjunction with rapidly rising labor productivity, a stagnating or slowly growing real wage leads to a fall in the wage share in output. This picture was politically congenial to Marx. If capitalism were to follow a path of rising labor productivity and a stagnating real wage, it would rapidly face a revolutionary situation, in which workers, conscious of their ability to produce a high standard of living, and systematically frustrated in their efforts to participate in the fruits of high productivity, would insist on taking control of the productive system.
I and VIII). Although he characteristically evades a sharp confrontation between the increasing returns to the accumulation of labor 34 Innovative capitalism and the distribution of income and capital inherent in the division of labor and the diminishing returns due to limited land resources, Smith seems to have believed that the division of labor could predominate for a long time. Smith’s theory of wages is equally delphic, but he does conjure up the comforting vision of rising wages in a progressive capitalist society in which accumulation is steadily increasing population and output.
