                                (Originally aired: 02-20-84)

                                          LOUIS O. KELSO 


           Lawyer / Economic Theorist / Investment Banker

                     Author (With Mortimer Adler):


                      "The Capitalist Manifesto (1958)"


Louis O. Kelso and Patricia Hetter Kelso estimates of the relative real inputs to production in the American economy of Labor (Physical and Intellectual) and Capital over time assuming reasonably competitive markets.  So ingrained is the “ethic” of the “Labor Theory of Value” that they thought it best to refer to Capital Owners as “Capital Workers” in keeping with their understanding that Capital instruments do “Work” - as surely as the most diligent human surrogate worker – and that indeed the observable trend is for Capital Instruments to do ever more of the Worlds “Work”.  The reflexive prevalent attitude of equating “Economic” man with Essential Human Values including the whole vast array of values around the “Work Ethic” all contribute to camouflage and maintain the fundamental miss-match between the way goods and services are produced and distributed and particularly their trends projected into the future. Cybernetic contributions (now almost exponential) are only adding to the much longer Historical trend. Represents US Economy but applies to World trending.  HHC                          

Chart of concentration of capital ownership in the U.S. over time.  The same general pattern applies to virtually all economies of and the World Economy as a whole – Plutocratic ownership and control of the real means of production.  With “The Labor Theory of Value” it only worsens.  HHC -

Below Quotes @ www.kelsoinstitute.org

"Conventional wisdom says there is only one way to earn a living, and that's to work. Conventional wisdom effectively treats capital (land, structures, machines, and the like) as though it were a kind of holy water that, sprinkled on or about labor, makes it more productive. Thus, if you have a thousand people working in a factory and you increase the design and power of the machinery so that one hundred men can now do what a thousand did before, conventional wisdom says, 'Voila! The productivity of the labor has gone up 900 percent!' I say 'hogwash.' All you've done is wipe out 90 percent of the jobs, and even the remaining ten percent are probably sitting around pushing buttons. What the economy needs is a way of legitimately getting capital ownership  into the hands of the people who now don't have it."
(Louis O. Kelso, Journal Asset Based Finance, 1982)

"The trouble with today's techniques of finance is that they're designed to make the rich richer.  None are designed to make the poor richer. That's why the poor are poor. Because they're not rich."
(Louis O. Kelso, San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle, 1978)

"The Roman arena was technically a level playing field. But on one side were the lions with all the weapons, and on the other the Christians with all the blood. That's not a level playing field. That's a slaughter. And so is putting people into the economy  without equipping them with capital, while equipping a tiny handful of people with hundreds and thousands of times more than they can use."
(Louis O. Kelso, Bill Moyers: A World of Ideas, 1990)



Charles Handy citing the 1930 reference by Lord John Maynard Keynes projecting “Technological Unemployment” for the future world of his grandchildren.  That would be right about now as technological advancement not only provides the possible means for Humanity’s collective “Transcendence of Scarcity” but poses the problem to progressives by their commitment (along with virtually all economic theorizing) to the “Labor Theory of Value” currently informing virtually all National Economies on Planet Earth &  the International System as well.    HHC 


"Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist ... It is ideas, not vested interests, which are dangerous for good or evil"   

The General Theory - 1936

"We are being afflicted with a new disease of which some readers may not have heard the name but of which they will hear a great deal in the years to come - namely technological unemployment"

Letter to our grandchildren - 1930

(Lord John Maynard Keynes)
