In fact there seems to be little evidence of an increase in rent as a share of output. Smith, in contrast, argues for a sustained increase in labor productivity through the widening of the division of labor. In the place of Ricardo and Malthus’ principle of diminishing returns Smith puts a “virtuous cycle” in which capital accumulation increases the scale of production, which makes a wider division of labor possible through technical change, which in turn further encourages capital accumulation.
Karl Marx, on the other hand, foresaw the tendency for capitalism to be a technologically progressive mode of production, with pervasive pressures toward labor-saving innovation in production (Marx, 1976, ch. 12; 1981, Part Three). Ricardo had shown (in his chapter on Machinery) that competitive pressure on individual capitalists to lower costs could lead to a general increase in labor productivity through the substitution of machinery for labor, but seems to have regarded this process as offering only a temporary relief from the pressure of diminishing returns to both capital and labor due to limited land resources.
On the one hand, the mathematical language of complex systems theory is the product of the last twenty or thirty years (though some mathematicians were thinking about this type of system before). On the other, there is a clearly traceable intellectual path from the Classical political economists to contemporary complex systems theory. Curiously enough, this path does not run directly through economic analysis, but through biology. The development of mathematics in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries was closely connected with the development of astronomy and physics.
