There are no doubt great pieces in those journals. After all, HOPE 
beat both Stigler (1991) and Rosenberg (1994)to the recovery of 
Babbage by more than five years, no? And don't think I don't know 
that HOPE published Lapides' trans of Grossmann's wage theory. But 
now turning to Marx criticism, what do you make of the awful, short, 
and superficial  review by Brewer of the excellent Bellofiore 
volumes, which could be considered a real event in the current 
development of Marxian economics.

All the best, Rakesh
