Abstract:     
One of the many peculiarities of labour as a commodity is that, unlike many commodities, it is not in fact produced for sale. The supply-side of the labour market operates relatively autonomously from the specific requirements and demands of the labour market, and the reproduction of labour proceeds unrelated to calculations about its subsequent saleability on the market. A key regulatory problem, then, in constituting a market for labour, is securing a supply of labour-as-commodity in the first instance.
