The ideal social system contains (1) civil society, (2) market society, (3) either no or minimal government. If that is true, then there must be a natural equilibrium between the size of (1) civil society and the size of (2) market society. We can define (1) civil society as household production that involves social production with other households or firms. A birthday celebration with friends and neighbors is an example of civil society. We can define (2) market society as market production and sales [advertising, bargaining, and contracting]. The production and sale of a cake by a bakery is an example of market society.
The equilibrium between civil and market society accordingly reflects an unfettered balance between total time allocated to social forms of household production vs. time allocated toward increasing money income according to an aggregated household production function maximized under given constraints. That is, the equilibrium between the size of civil society and market society reflects the aggregate amount of time allocated to social production of direct utility and use value (civil society) vs. time allocated to increasing revenue or exchange value (market society).
