If there is no profit margin,

Please read what I have written more carefully.

We *SHOULD* charge price above cost.  There *SHOULD* be a profit 'margin'.


For growth.

I don't see any other way to work our way out of the grip of the
Capitalists except to buy it all back from them.

So, for those of us willing invest early to start a business that
treats profit as described, we will need to make initial investment
for 'bootstrapping' - to get the organization formed.

But we must ALSO collect price above cost for late-comers as THEIR
investment, since how else will we buy the Almond trees and
Grape-vines and Cattle needed to supply them with the food that THEY
must consume?

Assuming we can get this started, and it is operating as we see fit -
for instance, supplying us with "at cost" organic whole milk under our
absolute control - we can't use those exact same cattle for newcomers,
for there is a limited supply - so we must fund the birth or purchase
of MORE cattle.
