Commodity (Marxism)

In classical political economy and especially Karl Marx’s critique of political economy, a commodity is any good or service (“products” of “activities”) produced by human labour and offered as a product for general sale on the market. Some other priced goods are also treated as commodities, e.g. human labor-power, works of art and natural resources, even although they may not be produced specifically for the market, or be non-reproducible goods.
