 Dear Dave,

I recommend you reading the first chapter of the first volume of Capital very carefully.
There Marx explains very well why the existence of money can be deduced dialectically from value form of commodity.

A state and a capitalist have in general only one thing in common: both 
are surplus appropriators. 

I think what Paul C is pointing out is that the existence of money -- 
such a central phenomena in capitalism -- cannot be deduced by some 
dialectical logic applied to specific features of capitalism.
