P ... C' - M'. We have seen profit = M' - M and the rate of profit = M'-M M On the assumption that all commodities exchange at their value M=MP+L (3) This can be expressed as M=c+v where c represents constant capital; and v, variable capital. The logic behind the choice of these terms is as follows: The total capital advanced at the start of the circuit of capital can be divided into two categories: (I) the part advanced on the means of production whose value remains constant throughout the circuit of capital- hence constant capital; and (2) the part advanced to employ labour whose value varies throughout the circuit - hence variable capital.

To start with the rate of profit. This is the ratio of the greatest concern to capital and a moment's consideration shows why. The rate of profit not only measures the rate of return on the total capital advanced, but also, and more importantly, the rate at which a business can expand. The example of the car firm illustrates this clearly. The profit of the firm at the end of the year amounts to £1'5 mn and this would allow the firm to employ another 1500 workers and thereby double its labour force.

The labour-power they sell is a use-value because the cars they produce are use-values. Collectively, the workers sell 3 mn hours of labour-power: individually, each worker sells 2000 hours. These figures measure the magnitude of the use-value of the commodity, labour-power, which the capitalist buys from its workers. Thirdly labour-power possesses value. It requires labour to produce and like any other commodity its value is equal to the amount of this labour that is socially necessary for its production.
