Jerry asks if the six book plan is better than just adding
more chapters to capital. I am sure that it is much better,
but it presents us with a tremendous challenge, even to attempt
the second book. What for instance is the starting point,
corresponding to the commodity in Capital, that one would
use in analysing landed property?
Should one seek a historical starting point, as in Engels
Origins of Family and Private Property, or is there
a synchronic starting point for the analysis of landed
property. There is in addition, the great amount of
empirical and historical data to be analysed in
giving us the background to write this - though some
of us may already have that.
