Profit & Interest

Part Five: The Division of Profit into Interest and Profit of Enterprise

Marx argues that when interest-bearing capital is separated from productive capital a division is introduced between the share of SV accruing to money-capital, interest and the profits that remain to productive capital after the payment of interest, that appear as the ‘profits of enterprise’.

Thus it comes to appear that capital generates interest, so that profit is completely divorced from production.
