: : I mean, what if you were retarded and paid $100 for a candy-bar. Would that REALLY make that candy-bar 'worth' $100?

: Would you, a calculator, some knowledge of candy manufacture and a mean average (!) of the time it takes workers to make them be able to calculate the 'real' worth of a candy bar?

That has been the business of capitalists since their time in the sun began.

To infer, as you do, that capitalists 'don't really know' what their products are worth---because the customer decides what commodities are worth(!)---is to insult capitalists everywhere.

They don't hire platoons of managers for nothing.
