I'm not clear on your answer.  What I was looking for is page citations to
Luxemburg, not page citations to Mattick on Luxemburg.  Do I understand
your answer to be that the relevant citation is to Marx's schemes of
extended reproduction in Volume 2 and that Marx was somehow at fault in
misleading people, including Luxemburg, with his schemes. 

As you can see, I'm just confused what is going on here.  Paul
