Just to add to references which might have been forgotten. I wrote about 
this question in my Marxian Theory of Crisis, Capital and the State in the 
Conference of Socialist Economists Bulletin (1972), reprinted in Economy 
and Society Vol 2 No 2 May 1973 and  the same position is included in Paul 
Bullock and David Yaffe, Inflation, the Crisis and the Post-War Boom in 
Revolutionary Communist 3/4 (1975) now on the RCG website at
