OK so you are implicityly assuming that R1=R2 =R3 this is not evident at this point of your explanation Paul Cockshott www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~wpc -----Original Message----- From: OPE-L on behalf of ajit sinha Sent: Sun 4/29/2007 9:52 PM To: OPE-L@SUS.CSUCHICO.EDU Subject: Re: [OPE-L] Sraffa and the question of gravitation --- Paul Cockshott <wpc@DCS.GLA.AC.UK> wrote: > Ajit > I have put a paper entitled, 'Sraffa and the > question > of equilibrium' written by myself and a colleague of > mine on the SHE web site.

Remember, this condition will satisfy the equation whatever the value of R happens to be. However, R1 = R2 = R3 = ... will be true only if R = the standard rate of profit.
