[OPE-L] value and price

I have a question:

Suppose we have a fully elaborated marxist political economy laid out before us.  

Is there a science of price distinct from a science of value?

No doubt any science of price would be emergent from a science of value, but would the study be different?  Would there be a different scientific object under investigation?  How would we characterize the difference?  How would we characterize what was distinctive about the science of each?

In his outlines and sketches of the totality of his project, did Marx say anything substantial about this?

  ‚?oRepression can really only live off fear. But is fear enough to remove
  need, thirst for justice, intelligence, reason, idealism‚?¶? Relying on
  intimidation, the reactionaries forget that they will cause more
  indignation, more hatred, more thirst for martyrdom, than real fear. They
  only intimidate the weak; they exasperate the best forces and temper the
  resolution of the strongest.‚?Ě ‚?"Victor Serge

  A Guide for Activists

  Victor Serge

  Introduction by Dalia Hashad

  Now available from Ocean Press at a special price of $15 (postage free!)

  50% discount for orders of 5 copies or more.

  Victor Serge‚?Ts expos√© of the surveillance methods used by the Czarist
  police reads like a spy thriller. An irrepressible rebel, Serge wrote this
  manual for political activists, describing the structures of state
  repression and how to dodge them. He also explained how such repression is
  ultimately ineffective.

  As civil liberties attorney Dalia Hashad illustrates in her introduction,
  Serge‚?Ts broad discussion on the oft-recycled tools of harassment and
  provocation is as relevant today as it was in pre-revolutionary Russia.
  Today‚?Ts repressive apparatus‚?"racial profiling, the USA Patriot Act,
  and similar legislation introduced in the name of the ‚?owar on
  terror‚?Ě‚?"point toward the unchecked power of the U.S. government and
  its allies, a power symptomatic of totalitarian regimes.

  Victor Serge was born to Russian émigré parents in 1890. He wrote
  numerous novels, poems and political essays and was forced into exile for
  opposing Stalin‚?Ts rule.

  Dalia Hashad is an attorney and the Arab, Muslim, South Asian advocate for
  the ACLU.
