Hi Phil. I'm still not quite sure what you are trying to get at, but I quite agree that he (Marx) didn't 'arrive at' Pareto's concept of optimality. This is not to suggest that Marx would necessarily reject optimization methods for _all_ subjects; rather, I think that he understood capitalism as a subject in which optimality played no central role in that system's dynamics. In solidarity, Jerry > But there is no way he is going to arrive at Pareto behaviour, as far as > I can see.
