Sure if c/v is not growing, rising s/v may create problems for the
realization of surplus value, and you can safely derive your
Kaleckian criticism of analytical Marxism. But get real, man! That

  Happy Thanksgiving to the yanquis (I'm off email for a while now)

congratulations on your wedding.
Yours, Rakesh
