La nouvelle articulation salaire, profit, rente dans le capitalisme cognitif
In the transition toward a cognitive capitalism, the transformations of the social organistion of production are strictly connected to those of income distribution. This evolution is deeply characterised by the re-emerging of the rent under different forms. The aim of this article is to provide a marxist interpretation of these mutations and their social and economic implications. The analysis is organised in two parts. First, the marxian definition of wage, rent and profit is revisited. Doing so, we revert to the insights given by Marx himself in the Third Book of Capital, where he shows how profit could become rent. This approach can be useful linked to the hypothesis of general intellect in order to better understand the rising of the new form of capitalism. Secondly, starting from this theoretical framework, we analyse the transformation of capital-labour relation during the transition towards a cognitive capitalism and the effective importance of the rent and the more and more blurred boundaries between rent and profit.
