Hi Rakesh,
One thing to do would be to consider from what respective perspectives(individual commodity, system-wide, all possible?) our respective viewpoints are coming from. The most important aspect I have been apparantly abysmally failing to get across is the importance of distinguishing between persepctives, in particular system-wide vs. individual. Your replies seem simply never to have engaged me on this. Yes - I am frustrated!
Let's put it another way - in 'what sense' can we say a commodity is not a value prior to sale? No sense at all? In what sense can we say it is? 
Many thanks,

	And of course I think potential exchange value is a potential form of value.

	Of course it does, I'm just not persuaded. And neither you by me.
	What to do? I am willing to move on.
