Thus, there is no reason to think that capitalist employers will automatically reward workers for higher productivity with higher wages. Furthermore, workers form a large and dispersed group that faces major difﬁculties in controlling the boundary conditions of the labor market. A rising wage easily attracts potential workers from other activities, such as subsistence farming, and from other regions and countries into the labor market, as Marx emphasized in his discussion of reserve armies of labor.
The difﬁculty this poses for economic analysis is that we do not have a very good understanding of the economics of long-run technical change, nor very good data from which to extrapolate over such a long time scale. The Classical/Marxian theory of induced technical change as an explanation of the evolution of labor and capital productivity and the wage share offers a promising analytical approach to these problems. By extending the analysis to three inputs to production, labor, capital, and land (representing the capacity of the environment to absorb the byproducts of production such as greenhouse gas emissions), we can study the paths the world economy will follow with and without the pricing of scarce environmental resources Complexity, self-organization, and political economy 27 like the atmosphere.
In this case, a positive shock to the population will raise standards of living, and drive fertility below mortality, leading to a decrease in population back toward the equilibrium level. Smith argued that there is a positive association between population and productivity because of the effect of the increasing division of labor with increasing population. If this Smithian effect outweighs the diminishing returns to limited land and natural resources, which seems to be the case at present for the world economy, the Smithian demographic equilibrium at a relatively high income and low mortality is stable.
