         Without in any way granting the premise that any economist
made such a demand (something you have raised ad nauseam on this list
but without getting any support that I am aware of), how does having
an economist as (non-monitoring) moderator make it 'inevitable' that
this list pursues 'the discussion of Sraffa and economics rather than
Marx'? I think I'm missing something.
