I got the email below from the editor of the Swedish Journal
Clarte, is there anyone on the list who could take up
his request for a review article comparing the TSSI and
probabalistic interpretations of value theory?

Hi Paul,

I was listening to Alan Freeman who was talking about the importens of
Marx today, in thursday on European Social Forum in Malmo, Sweden.
When he was talking about Marx and the theory of labour value I think he
was mentioned you and Cottrell three or four times and that it was
problem with the probabalistic angel. The whole thing was a bit
strange because he never discused the difference in any detalies, he
mere mentioned it. And I wonder how much the young activist´s did
understand of it.

And now I wounder if it:
a) whould be a good idea to introduce in a popular sense the differens
between the probabalistic and the the TSSI approach for a swedesh
audience, or if it would do more harm than good?
b) If it is a good idea I think i would be good if it could be an
article of someone that not is a distinct representative of any of the
to schools. Do there already exist such a text or is there anyone who
could write such a an article?
c) Or are there another way to handel this?
