Allin, I am not asking that you defend Andrew's concept of prices of
production.  Rather, I am asking that you reconsider your earlier

"To rephrase my point in [5051], I'm saying that your textual evidence
from Marx in terms of what does and does not cause prices of
production to change does not seem to me decisive in adjudicating
between Andrew's concept of prices of production and the alternative."

in light of the arguments presented in my latest post (5157).  If my
arguments and textual evidence are not decisive, would you please explain
again why.

Thanks again very much for your helpful contributions to this
