Good, we are getting to the core of the issue. First, let me clarify my
statement (1), since it seems like Philip misread it. I claim that
'economic value' is a property that use-values *acquire* in societies.

Now I wrote that 'economic value' is the property of commensurability.
Do you deny that human beings are capable of quantitatively comparing
use-values outside of generalized commodity production and exchange?
