No, I am not sure, I just thought I could remember him making the analogy, and I had hoped someone else might remember.

Do you know where?
I usually come accross this analogy always in comments on Smith's invisible-hand, which as I think is in most of the cases wrong.

Does not Engles make this analogy?

Subject: [OPE] labor-value and gravity

I'm writing a paragraph drawing on the analogy between labor-values as

properties of commodities in virtue of the law of value, and weight as

a property of mass in virtue of the law of gravity. I'm certain this

analogy is not20original, and I wondered if anyone knew who first

expressed this analogy so I can reference them?

Thanks for any help.
