Hi Paul C and Jurriaan:
Yes, I think it's also important for purposes of conversational 
clarity that parties to a discussion are clear whether a 
question concerns a history of thought question, including
hermeneutic questions associated with Marx, or a claim 
about the real subject matter of capitalism. Both types of
discussion are legitimate but there is often confusion when 
"Marx questions" and "empirical questions" are discussed
In solidarity, Jerry
