Sraffa, Pasinetti, Steedman, Leontief, and von Neumann all wanted to
"freeze reality as it is" ??? !!!

I know Gary and Ajit wouldn't want to "freeze reality as it is." Does
that mean, according to your perspective, that they no longer
are advocates of linear production theory?  Or, are they unknowing
"tools" of the class in decline?
