Re Julian's [OPE-L:4855;4858]:

There is an issue here that goes beyond, yet relates to, the TSSI. Namely: was Marx basically a Ricardian economist or did his perspective on value and political economy represent a revolutionary departure (a "paradigmatic shift") from existing thought?

It is my sense that many of the debates on value theory have been among those who have answered that question quite differently.  Perhaps one of the reasons for this has been the renewed interest in "classical economics" since the publication of _PCMC_ by Sraffa. 

In solidarity, Jerry
