I think you have to cut Steve a little slack here, given that he
was engaging with Rakesh, whose special version of TSS (if it is
a version of TSS; maybe it isn't) does insist upon technical
change as a condition of maintaining Marx's two equalities...
except that it turns out that technical change is not in fact
sufficient to do the trick... (I feel saner since I withdrew
from that debate.)
