Hi, Ajit:

I am happy that Sraffa and you are the real forest guys! But I am sure that
you are more expert than Sraffa in the sidetracking know-how.
I still believe that if you say that the only way of interpreting M = P*Q is
that one must know P before knowing M, this is a sample of methological
individualism in a general sense. We are not referring to actions nor agents
indeed, but I insist that we must look at the forest (M) before looking at
the trees (the P).
