The industrial revolution has a history, Read Marx. I was using commodity and broker in their widest sense. All component parts of a computer can be regarded as commodities and anyone who buys and sells commodities can be regarded as a broker.Look how much controversy Apple causes each year with the amount of NAND Flash it acquires (Oh, that's a commodity, too).True, they may add a certain value to it by using human labour as a commodity. But they still end up brokering it.
