Paul, sure, what is important is what "theory is true". Can we
just a priori get rid of simultaneous determination of values and
prices because in fact this is not the way iot happens therefotre it
is not true???

Absolutelly correct. It was never my intention to do what you imply I
was. I was just **deriving** the political implications of the two approaches
(Simultaneous and temporal) from the body of their theoretical
structure and then people can make up their mind. BTW, FOR ARGUMENT
SAKE, If you demostrate me that a "true" theory leads to the legitimisation
of concentration camps, I am afraid I will have to challange your notion
of truth.
