the btopic of money in non capitalist states is really important to reconsider if  we are thinking of  post capitalist or transition processes, tghis is why I am concerned here with the further past.

    Paul B:

    So both of you agree that this topic has no bearing whatsoever on 
    the topic of  monetary relations and the state under conditions
    of capitalist social relations? The question of a "state theory of money"
    (something that was most certainly part of this thread) is not just a 
    historical question but also concerns the present and the manner in 
    which the value-form and the state (and all relevant topics) are theorized. 
    It was to that topic that my comments were directed.

    In solidarity, Jerry
