Hi Andy.  I don't understand why you think that working at the
level  [of analysis] of  the VCC is more concrete than working at the level
of the OCC. Could you explain?

By my reading, the OCC represents a dialectical unity of the VCC
and the TCC.   Thus,  Marx writes that the VCC  "in so far as it is
determined by the technical composition and mirrors the changes in the
latter", is the OCC.  It would seem to me therefore that the level
of analysis of working on the VCC is the same as the level for
working on the OCC.

In solidarity, Jerry
