Nicky: I don't have a copy of the _C&C_ article
in front of me and I am confused by your answer.
In the article where there was the quote from
Marx that was taken from the Penguin/Vintage ed.
of Volume 1, was there a mistake?  I.e. did the article have Marx stating
a) "Thus capital is productive" ?; or
b) "Thus capital [is] productive"?; or
c) "Thus capital appears *productive*"?
[Only c) is an accurate citation from the Penguin
edition. Emphasis in c)  is in original.]

In solidarity, Jerry
