I think one of the points that Mike makes in OPE Concerning Mike's post on
dependent and independent variables, it seems to me that up to the what
Marx calls the "period of manufacture", the wage is indeed the independent
variable and the the rate of accumulation the dependent. Once fixed
capital is introduced the dependent becomes the imdependent and vice versa.
Otherwise, why make a big deal out of the two periods?
