Hi John. You asked in [OPE-L:665]:

Interesting question. But, as you must know since you refer to Ch. 10 of
Vol 3, the category of market value is discussed there. Are you
unsatisfied with the treatment of that topic in Chapter 10? If so,

Or are you suggesting (contra Fred) that the categories of market price
and market value are best analyzed at the level of abstraction of Volume
3, Part Two?
