–“I’m confused about the market production of commons”–
I use the term market government, and market production of commons do describe the fact that commons may be produced by at least three means:
1 – private production of commons via the usual market process
2 – use of the house of ‘parliament’ to negotiate the voluntary production of a common (which may not be imposed upon)
3 – use of the houses of parliament to negotiate a trade between classes for the exchange of monetary and non-monetary goods, services, and behavior, to product commons that may or may not be physically constructed, and may instead be normatively or behaviorally constructed.

The problem of circumventing market demand for legislation is answered by providing options 2 and 3 in lieu of monopoly rule.
