These sensible approaches to the analysis of competition, even the empirical work of Bain, would never become completely respectable in a profession that resolutely maintained Walrasian competition in its microeconomic “foundations”. Ideology has been the fundamental barrier to the adoption of a sensible analysis of competition. A search for a rigorous theory of imperfect competition implies an admission unacceptable to the neoclassicals: that competition is systematically flawed and the Pareto benchmark is theoretically and empirically irrelevant.
To include it as one of the many traded items in the Walrasian market requires the introduction of production into the system. 9 The market for labor power cannot be treated like the markets for produced commodities and services, without flights of fantasy that make the mythical auctioneer seem a credible construction. In a Walrasian world workers arrive on the market day with their labor power to sell. A price is struck that satisfies every seller of labor power in terms of the amount of time contracted for work, and every employer must also be content with the contracted labor time.
