Even if RD did not know initially of HG's work--she certainly came
to know of if it after reading Rosdolsky--she should have then admitted
that most of her economic ideas were anticipated by HG. Certainly
her followers today should admit to so much. I have already allowed
for the fantastic possibility that RD did not know initially of HG's work.

Why can't I say something for the first time? Is there something
about me that makes this impossible? I am one of the very people
who have read HG, RD and BS very carefully. So what?
