Away from the stationary state, some plots won’t be cultivated because there is not enough capital and labor available to employ all the land. Total corn production at any time is the sum of outputs from plots being used— ranging from a large quantity on the most productive land to much less on the least productive at the extensive margin. Workers get paid a quantity of output set by the product of their number and the subsistence wage per person. The remainder (or surplus output) is divided between capitalists who undertake farming and landowners who rent land out.

Such intermediate inputs contribute to both demand and cost. They are built into input-output tables (or matrixes), as introduced by the Russian American economist Wassily Leontief in the 1930s. After the costs of intermediate inputs are subtracted from the total value (price × quantity) of a product, what is left over is the value added that its production creates. In turn, value added breaks down into factor payments to labor, capital, land, and so on. Smith recognized that such payments “add up” to value added but said little about what determines their levels.
