And I had quoted Mattick Sr:

Paul (Z), this was then your question

"Regarding your phrase (third paragraph below) that "the schema of value on
which Luxemburg's analysis is based has different rates of profit in  the
various branches of production", could you give me the page citations to
Luxemburg for this statement?  This reading doesn't ring a bell in me."

I believe Paul Mattick Sr here was referring to Marx's volume 2 
schema as the basis of Luxemburg's work. Indeed in the passage which 
I reproduced in that post, there is no quote attributed to Luxemburg.

Yours, Rakesh
