What the other economists advance against it is either horse-piss, namely that every action after all acts upon something, thus confusion of the product in its natural and in its economic sense; so that the pickpocket becomes a productive worker too, since he indirectly produces books on criminal law (this reasoning at least as correct as calling a judge a productive worker because he protects from theft). Or the modern economists have turned themselves into such sycophants of the bourgeois that they want to demonstrate to the latter that it is productive labour when somebody picks the lice out of his hair, or strokes his tail, because for example the latter activity will make his fat head – blockhead – clearer the next day in the office. https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1857/grundrisse/ch05.htm

You can more or less boil down the existence of bullshit jobs to the separation of capital ownership from capital management. The big porky who owns the business (including the many shareholders) can't be bothered to see to the day to day operations of the business so they need managers. For larger businesses they need a whole bureaucracy. Within that space, the managerial "class" (really a stratum) is able to carve out for themselves a sort of security. Depending on the scenario, it's often beneficial to a manger to have people around doing nonsensical things. It creates an impression that the manager is more necessary if they have a lot of people to manage, for instance. You could say that what's happening with bullshit jobs is a result of internal contradictions of a business, the antagonism between the interests of the managers and the interests of the owners.

The bigger issue than bullshit jobs though is bullshit businesses. There are whole sectors of the economy doing something unnecessary but by some scheme are able to turn a profit (e.g. the FIRE sector).

Porkies are stupid and hire scammers to run businesses for them. Got it

I mean, yeah, the whole marketing science is just self-referential self-glorification black hole, same as economists and managers. What do Americans call it, hustler culture? Hustler class carved out a place for itself. It's kind of easy to see how fascists would see this and decide that if they liberate porkies from hustlers, then real capitalism "will come back"

Its less porky and more the managerial class as a burgeoning economic entity. The PMC is self-reproduced as a sector which itself is outsourced as an independent market, which is why its basically impossible to move up the chain in a business these days. So managers stand against both porky and proles.
And youll also notice that so much populist discourse is about how much people hate their "boss" which is usually just a regional manager, not the company owner(s).

How about making a stock that funds workers coops and get minority ownership on the workers coop?
It'd still be a corporation but obviously it wouldn't be the same. Since workers coops are more resilient eventually most businesses would be coops.

>Critics, attacking Marxism, accuse it of maintaining that development is performed according to Hegelian triads. According to them, development takesplace in the following way. At the beginning of the development of any process, it appears as a thesis, as something positive. This thing generates its own particular opposite – its antithesis. Further development unifies, in a way, the thesis and antithesis, that is, comes out as a synthesis. Thus development of any object takes places in three stages which form a “triad”: thesis, antithesis, synthesis. By these positions Hegel wanted to confirm the law of development through the struggle of opposites, transition of one phenomenon into another, its opposite, and transition of the former into such opposite, in which is included both preceding stages of development. Hegel’s positions contain profound thinking, which was grasped and developed by Marx and Engels. Engels wrote that the negation of the negation – “a very simple procedure, performed everywhere every day, which every child can understand as soon as the mysterious junk in which the old idealistic philosophy wrapped itself is stripped off […].”2

>But it is just metaphysical philosophy which also does not see anything in the law of the negation of the negation other than mystical [188] junk. The law of the negation of the negation is depicted by metaphysics as a schematic “triad,” which Marxists fit to the development concrete reality by force. True, it is necessary to say that Hegel himself gave grounds, particularly in his Philosophy of Right, to interpret “triplicity” as a law of development itself, and not merely as an aspect of the law of the negation of the negation. Thus he considered crime as the negation of law, and punishment as the negation of crime, that is, as the negation of the negation. Here the triad actively entered as an external schema, which drives the phenomena of reality. It would also be possible to say that the

struggle for existence in organic nature takes place according to a triad: insects are eaten by birds (thesis and antithesis), but birds are eaten by predators (synthesis). A kind of unification of the world of insects and the world of birds arises in the stomach of the predator arises.

>Certainly, such schematic behavior of phenomena according to a triad could not explain development

South Africa’s foreign minister says her country’s citizens who fight in the Israeli armed forces or alongside them in Gaza will be arrested when they return home, deepening the rift between the nations after South Africa lay accusations of genocide against Israel at the United Nations’ top court. Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor made the comment earlier this week at a Palestinian solidarity event attended by officials from South Africa’s ruling African National Congress party.

Tony Cliff: The Jews, Israel and the Holocaust
Knowing that they would face resistance from the Palestinians, the Zionists were always clear that they needed the help of the imperialist power that had the major influence in Palestine at the time. On 19 October 1898 Herzl went to Constantinople to have an audience with Kaiser Wilhelm. At that time Palestine was in the Ottoman Empire which was a junior partner of Germany. Herzl told the Kaiser that a Zionist settlement in Israel would increase German influence as the centre of Zionism was in Austria, which was a partner of the German Empire. He also dangled another carrot: “I explained that we were taking the Jews away from the revolutionary parties.” Towards the end of the First World War, when it was clear Britain was going to take over Palestine, the leader of the Zionists at the time, Chaim Weitzmann, contacted the British foreign secretary, Post too long.
