I am referring to:

Benetti-Cartelier, Marchands, salariat et capitalistes, Maspero 1980 (out
of print)
Aglietta-Orlean, La violence de la monnaies, PUF 1982

There is of course much in English of this four authors, but the books are
not translated.

May be Michel De Vroey has made some synthesis of these two different
approaches on Capital and Class, but I'm not sure, and however I fear that
nothing can substitute the reading of these texts.

I repeat that I disagree with them, but that I think they are outstanding
contributions to the debate.
