A couple of additional items worth pointing out:

1) Dunayevskaya, under her own name,  had as far back as
1944 published in the _American Economic Review_.  The
_AER_ did not publish the works of graduate students!  (Recall
that Shoul received her PhD in 1947).    RD's article,
moreover, attracted quite a bit of attention -- including a
reference in the front page of _The New York Times_ in
October, 1944 and was commented on by Oscar Lange, Paul
Baran, and Leo Rogin in the _AER_ (there was also a rejoinder
by RD in the 9/45 issue of the _AER_).   With this kind of
attention in the profession and the media one can not just
slip off and get a PhD under another name at a major college
in the US!

2)  Shoul's "Karl Marx and Say's Law" was published in the
_Quarterly Journal of Economics_ in November, 1957. In the
QJE  article, she was still very much a disciple of Grossmann (see
note #43), but Dunayevskaya -- who was also publishing works
on political economy in the mid-1950s -- had no such favorable
references to Grossmann.  Indeed, her perspective had moved
in a quite different direction.

In solidarity, Jerry
