I'll let one of  our VFT comrades answer your question concerning
their perspectives. 

For myself, I would express the relation as follows:

Within a system of generalized commodity production and exchange,
commodities are defined by the duality of use-value and value where
the value-form is a necessary form of appearance of value and money
is a necessary form of appearance of the value-form. Thus, value, the
value-form, and money are all necessarily linked to each other and to 
the commodity.  I guess that means I have a "single-system" (as
distinct from a "dual system") interpretation.

So that we don't all repeat ourselves endlessly, is there anybody that 
wants to say something about this topic that they have _not_ said before 
on this list? 

In solidarity, Jerry
