With his corn-corn model in terms of physical quantities, Andrew is asking me to determine prices of production with a method that I have explicitly and vehemently rejected." This is quite false. I did NOT, did NOT, ask you to determine prices of production by means of physical quantities. I gave you some physical data in order to model a rise in productivity. I asked you to come up with the production prices, but I did NOT, did NOT say that you needed to use the rising productivity data to do so. Use them, don't use them, I don't care. Do whatever you need to do. Make whatever additional assumptions you want to or need to make. Just come up with some production prices -- some NUMBERS. Hic Rhodus. Hic Salta.
