Alejandoro,
gracias.
I thought I had printed out all posts and read them but few posts
including 4301 happened to be omitted for my mistake.

First, my concern is that TSS interpretation might be examined
through a campact but more *complexed* model to show non-equilibrium
of capitalism. I say *complexed* in the sense of *complexology*.

As I read TSS'ers posts, their interpretation requires price of
inputs measured at the time when inputs are put-in respectively.
So I write down quite straight:
> Vj[t1]=SIGMA(Aij*Pi[t0+ti])+Lj[t0,t1]

For example, fabrication of a PC.
Let us assume a PC is fabricated in 3 days. I purchase a case,
a power supply and hard disk and install them on the first day.
They are purchased (or priced) at \$100, \$50, and \$200 respectively
on the first day.
On the second day, I install a mother board, CPU and RAM. They
are priced at \$220, \$400 and \$250.
On the third day, I install OS/2(hi, Paul Z.) to the system and
connect a monitor and a keyboard. OS/2 is priced at \$80 and others
at \$500 and \$30.
I worked 2 hours everyday and 1 hour worth \$30.
What is the value of the fabricated PC?
TSS writes \$100+\$50+\$200+\$220+\$400+\$250+\$80+\$500+\$30+3*2*\$30
=\$1910. Right?
If RAM shows a big increase in price on the third day that leads
its price to be \$300, simultaneists measures the PC as \$1960.
Right?
