Hi Paul Z. 


I agree, in retrospect, that this was a poor choice of words. A more accurate expression might have been "dismissive comments" as in:

The passage from Marx via Fred was not indended to directly bear on that issue. It was intended to directly bear on the context of the passage from Ch. 6 re the debate that Fred and Andrew have been having over what can cause a change in prices of production. That is why I introduced it with "Re Vol 3, Ch 6". (Maybe you missed that line).
In solidarity, Jerry
