borg is not Don.

Think before you post.

: Don: Tell me. What is the labor value of a whip-socket on the automobile of your choice? Or an air-conditioner to an Eskimo in Alaska? Or whale oil to a Londoner?

: Don: It sells or it doesn't. If
: there's no profit at some point it will cease to exist.

Carl Menger exploded the labor theory of value more than a century ago, as a result of the marginalist revolution. You might want to read some modern economics.
