Introduction In the second volume of Capital and by means of numerical examples, Marx studies the extended reproduction of social capital in a bisector economy. He specifies that the figures of his schemes represent the reproduction of monetary flows: “The figures may indicate millions of marks, francs, or pounds sterling” (1893: 243). Such flows depict the total outcome of both sectors and the payment of the means of production and of the workers necessary to the enlarged reproduction of the economy.
