In my previous reply I refered only to the debates in the eastern block
marxist community. For relevance I should of course have pointed out
that it has been controversial on OPE too with several participants,
Gerry included, arguing that in a non capitalist society where money was
not in use, there could be no measure of value. This is where the value
form theory lines up with the Austrian school of conservative economics.
