Which class of agents makes this choice?
It can surely only be a subset of the holders of bonds, those
industrial companies that could hold either bonds or real means
of production. In this case, the transfer would surely not just
be between bonds and constant capital, but between (bonds+bank deposits)
and constant capital.
