I would just like to pose an apparently simple question into the complex and
interesting debate between Fred and Gil. Gil writes:

Is price-value equivalence not a relevant starting point for a (sensibly
useful) 'even if' argument: 'Even if price-value equivalence holds' claims
Marx, 'I can derive the conditions of existence for exploitation of labour'.
And then does it.

Or am I missing something?
