189. Before you asked which worker was expropriating from the others
which is clearly not a Marxist definition of anything. Now you have shifted it to basically a question of "is the stock market an example of expropriation". You are apparently not clear on the Marxist argument you are so quick to decry -- Marxism talks about classes. Working class, ownership class.

As for R&D you have this mythologized presentation that is as though capitalism means betting on the 41-point 'dog all the time and the ones that pick Stanford or Appalachian State are the "winners" who drive the economy through their foresight and daring. You have yet to explain why capitalism so uniquely lends itself to innovation or how mankind managed to adapt and flourish as a species for so long without it.
