Subject: [OPE-L:5430] THE MONTH IN REVIEW [August, 1997]


**** AT A GLANCE ****

Participation: 11 of 55 [20%]

Volume: 41 posts. (began with [5354])

Most discussed thread: "Luxury goods and profit rate"



A. Thread discussed at *greatest* length (20 or more posts):

o LUXURY GOODS AND PROFIT RATE [includes "Luxuries in the New
Solution"] (31 posts).

B. *Other topics discussed* included:

o USE-VALUE OF MONEY [continued from previous months; includes
"speculation and the value of money"] (9).

OVERALL, August was a *slow but serious* month. Although the numbers for
volume and participation were still low during August, that is already
beginning to change with the start of September (as of this moment the
participation rate is 55% and rising!). Now, if all of comrades who
have written about the subject of "Jerry Levy" write posts on other
subjects, then we will have an *excellent* month in September.

Again, thanks to everyone! It is very heartening (pun intended) to know
that so many care about the list owner. It feels good to be alive!

In solidarity, Jerry
