'expanded scale of reproduction' was my translation and may differ
some nuances from the original "die Reproduction auf erweiterter
Stufenleiter oder.."(Dietz). Marx see this and 'accumulation' same
meanings as it(they) reproduce(s) capital-relation on a progressive
scale. At this fundamental part of the GLCA chapter, Marx defines
the term "accumulation" as reproduction on a progressive scale.
It's obvious. Then he expands his theory of GLCA.

I think we may begin with the definition of accumulation as "reproduction
on a progressive scale" in theorizing GLCA.
