Paul C,

What are some empirical estimates of the monetary value
of the stock of c as a percentage of GNP (or GDP)?   Is the
long-term empirical trend for this percentage to remain
stable,  decrease, or increase?  (Note that I am not asking
for a theoretical claim one way or another -- just empirical
estimates in as many countries and time periods that list
members are aware of.)

In solidarity, Jerry

PS: where we have both GNP and GDP data,  which one
should Marxians use?  Why?
