Jerry says:

I understood, perhaps mistakingly, you to be suggesting that labor-saving
advances in constant fixed capital in the period of "modern industry" are
not the norm. I don't believe that is the case.

John says:

No. I am not saying this at all. I, agreeing with Marx, am saying
that the advances are both labor saving and capital saving.
If you are claiming that any of examples you listed differ,
I'd like to see some numbers.
