> Levels of abstraction? There are none. Suggest some.

Hi Phil:

I'm happy to oblige.

At the level of Capital, there are the three sub-levels:

o   The process of  production of capital
o   The process of circulation of capital
o   Capitalist Production of the whole

Another triumvirate of levels are:

o  Capital

o  Landed Property

o  Wage-Labour

So far, there are three levels.  Now come another three.

Then there is the level of abstraction of

o The State


o Foreign Trade

And then

o World market.

Whether there are levels of abstraction more concrete than the
world market is an interesting question.

If you want to call them "layers" instead of "levels", that's fine.

In solidarity, Jerry
