A question I have been thinking about related to this thread:

* How can one make meaningful empirical statements regarding the
re-distribution of surplus-value (with or without a "shift-share
index") if one is only looking at data for an individual capitalist
economy? I.e. unless we have accurate data for all markets within the
world capitalist economy, how can we trace the international movement
of surplus-value?
