p. 317 has no such phrase in my Fowkes edition and, in fact, the word
"money" does not even appear on that page anywhere (I checked twice -- am
I blind?).

The page rather says "I call [that part of capital which is turned into
means of production] the constant part of capital, or more briefly,
constant capital."

See provide the exact edition of Marx you are using, Fred, if not the
Vintage/Random House 1977.

Thanks, Paul
