Shayna Russell 18710646 Geo130 McClintock June 8, 2010 Tuesday June 1, 2010 Both Smith and Marx, are concerned with the aggregation of society to cities. Smith wonders at the increased efficiency; Marx worries about monotonous tasks toll on the mental health of citizens. Smith interprets the use of money and how it developed from bartering to have a “go-between metal,” something that can be weighed out and divided; if all you have is a cow to trade, you can only get a cows worth of salt. He also defines value in two separate categories: use-value, what you can get out of the object, and exchange-value, how rare and sought after the object is by the rest of society. Marx talks about the metabolic rift. Capitalism aggregates an “ever-growing” population in cities while at the same time robbing the soil through intensive agriculture and relocating human waste, which would normally be returned to the soil.
