Marx felt that capitalism would open doors for monopsony exploitation.6 The degree of inequality between the owners of capital and the disadvantaged is big enough to subject them to circumstances where they can only work to earn a living. Capitalism disfavors them as just a few own capital in the society while the vast majority of the population lacks self-sustenance and have to be dependent on the wealthy. This leaves them vulnerable and are exploited by the capital owners as they earn little relative to what they do for the firm. Thorsten Veblen looks at the workers and the capitalists at different angles. Like Marx, he is not impressed with the few individuals who took charge of the entire production process and used their position to exploit the less fortunate.
