Hi Paul:
Well, a demystified formula for the rate of profit from a Marxian perspective
should include surplus value (S) and allow for S to be increased in ways other
than just through increasing investment in (constant) capital stock. If V and
S aren't included in the formula then it makes comparisons of the rate of
profit to the organic composition of capital and the rate of exploitation more
difficult: i.e. if you include c, v, and s in all three formulas then you shouldn't
have a comparing apples and mangos type problem.
