Hi Jerry

There was a conference in Rome last year,  organised, I think,  by
Laboratorio per la Critical Sociale.  Ernesto Screpanti's paper was
entitled 'Value and Exploitation: A Counterfactual Approach'.  From
the first paragraph:

.. Cavallaro's appeal to beware of mystifying labour values lets us
hope that the search can proceed along correct lines today, avoiding
certain scholastic forcings which we have witnessed in the past,
although the interventions of Carchedi, Freeman and Kliman seem to
want to kill this hope at birth.

This could well elicit a response.

I have a hardcopy. I will bring it to Washington.
