I said that Michael H had not presented on this list a careful critique
for why Marx had provided the rudiments of what he had wanted to
say on the world market. This is a matter of fact. Certainly
there has be no quotation of major parts of HG's argument and
systematic refutation of him on this question. Michael Lebowitz
of course did offer a systematic refutation of HG's idea that Marx
had provided the rudiments for his book on wage labor. That I found
Lapides more convincing does not mean Lebowitz did not make a systematic
argument. But this is not the case with HG's case for Marx's essential
completion of the book on the world market. And whether Michael H has "referred" to
Grossmann elsewhere is irrelevant.
