Accumulation Theory is a system of economics practiced in some regions.
With the breakdown of the hegemonic capitalist/market-based mode of food production and distribution in the greater Slavonic region, mass-organised human capital collectives (as distinct from quasi- or un- organised human capital collectives) were forced to adopt new modes of production, or face extinguishment.
Known as Accumulation Theory, this revolutionary economic paradigm seeks to normalise production and distribution problems which are distinctly paradoxical to traditional command economies. Due to the overabundance of machinery capital factors of production, the traditional command economy goal of neutralising such capital is no longer achievable, but instead, the effective neutralisation of human capital factors of production is required to ensure normalisation of the production and distribution of food.
Accumulation Theory is thus named as most scholars of proper background and understand recognise that some regions have now entered a state beyond the necessary phase of capital accumulation, and so a new conception of accumulation is required.
- Given excess machinery capital, the only factor of production of recognised importance is human capital, which is controlled by the collective.
- Whereas previous wars were interpreted as imperialist competition for resources required to maintain the rate of machinery capital accumulation through continued input of raw resources, new conflicts are predicted to be driven by the need to maintain the rate of human capital accumulation .
While some scholars less familiar with the empirical conditions of food production and distribution have criticised Accumulation Theory as “a bizarre, neo-Leninist re-interpretation of feudalism, with odious overtones of slave-based conquests”, I believe it shows great promise in allowing post-collapse mass-organised human capital collectives (or, States) achieve the necessary autarky to thrive . It is only once this autarky is secured, then the benefits of the latest envisioning of the revolution can be spread to the common people.
