This paper analyses the Iaw of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall from a perspective based on the tension between surplus value accumulation and the growth in available labour. After having shown that the standard version of this law does not allow to infer in a logical way the rise of the organic composition of capital, it focuses the analysis on the distribution of the accumulated surplus value between additional constant capital and additional variable capital. With this as a starting point, it assesses to which degree economics are efficient in the use of the constant capital regarding the level of the organic composition.The counteracting tendencies will be organically articulated regarding the tendency to fall. A dynamic model of the accumulation of the surplus value makes it possible to analyses the effects that a growing rate of the surplus value and of the depreciation of the capital have on the rate of profit. Finally, this paper deals with the intervention of State in what regards the very existence of the law. It successively deals with:the influence of State over surplus value accumulation, the non realisation by State of the labour supplied by the workers of the public sector and the non realisation of the labour that is realised in collective means of production; the non productive public expenditures as required labour.
