    El artículo estudia la igualdad postulada por Adam Smith entre el precio de cada bien y la suma del ingreso obtenido con su producción. Con este fin, se introduce la tasa de distribución del ingreso para designar la proporción salarios/ganancias correspondiente. Así mismo, después de comparar las teorías de Marx y de Smith se establece que: a) la tasa de distribución del ingreso de cualquier bien es igual a la proporción en la que el precio del mismo (en unidades de salario) excede a su valor y b) la tasa de explotación es una tasa de distribución del ingreso particular, la cualcorresponde a la canasta de bienes adquirida con el ingreso de los trabajadores. Finalmente, se encuentra una condición necesaria y suficiente para que la tasa de explotación sea mayor que la de ganancia; y una cota superior no trivial para la cantidad de trabajo incorporado en cada canasta de bienes.
