You seem to be suggesting, in answering Mike L, that the subject of
non-commodity money should be further developed in the book on
wage-labour (Book III in the 6-book-plan). I don't really understand that
point. It seems to me that this topic should be developed in Book IV (The
State) and further concretized in Book V (International Trade) and Book
VI (World Market and Crises). The basic point I would make here is that
the development of this category of concretion requires the further
conceptualization of the state-form. Do you agree? As for the point you
make about monopoly (oligopolies?), perhaps that subject should be
developed in Book VI. What do you (and others) think?
