Dear Fred,
The paper is titled 'An Obituary or a New Life for the Tendency of
the Rate of Profit to Fall' and can be found in  Review of Radical
Political Economics, 15:1, 1983, pp. 131-148. It has got a few typos
in it (URPE did not in those days always return the text to authors
for checking) but these are relatively easy to sort out - if you have
any trouble let me know and I will tell you what they are supposed to
be. I am trying to produce a decent scanned copy: if I do, then I
will send that electronically, with typos fixed.

By turnover period, I mean the sum of the turnover period of fixed
capital plus the turnover period of constant capital plus the
turnover period of variable capital, which can of course all differ
and contain different variants. These differences are explicitly
taken into account in the paper.
