Stationary Waves: Zero Marginal Product of Labor?

“If we can produce the same output with 10 percent less labor, then produce 10 percent more output. But we can’t sell 10 percent more output? OK. But that doesn’t mean the workers have zero marginal productivity. It means, of the face of it, there is an demand problem.”

First: The notion of zero marginal product of labor is ludicrous. Anyone who’s actually held a real job knows that the marginal product is often negative.

But we can’t sell 10 percent more output? OK. But that doesn’t mean the workers have zero marginal productivity. It means, of the face of it, there is an demand problem. Demand needs to be 10 percent higher.

The notion the we figure out how to produce a given level of output of some type with less labor, and that means that the workers that we don’t need to produce that given amount of labor have zero marginal productivity is absurdly wrong.
