Jurriaan Much of what you say is realistic. But the historical narrowing of the debate on the TP is motivated by Bortkiewicz's desire to check Marx's reasoning in a special case (of simple reproduction, no price-value divergence due to market uncertainties etc.). Marx's distinction between prices of production and market prices has the same theoretical motivation, I think. If value-theory fails in this special case -- then why should it scale up to your more realistic situations? One contribution of the TSS approach is to argue that this special case is irrelevant. I am not so sure. -Ian.
