Paul C claimed:

>What Taylor was quantifying was exactly Marx's simple average labour.

Taylor could not have done this himself. Marx clearly argues in the
paragraph which you quote that reduction of skilled or intensified labor
into a specific quantity of simple labor is established by a SOCIAL process
that goes on behind the backs of the producers. And this would include
Taylor's (back). He can't effect the reduction or conversion by himself;
this social process happens in the market.
