Fred Paul, as I discussed in a previous post, I am not insisting that every theory use the same conceptual frameowrk. Rather, I am emphasizing that Marx's conceptual framework is very different from Sraffa's conceptual framework, and thus that the conclusions derived from Sraffa's framework do not apply to marx's framework. I also agree (with some reservations) that Sraffa's theory is about the same reality as Marx's theory. But I argue that Sraffian conclusions about that reality (e.g. values not linked to prices) are not correct conclusions, because the Sraffian framework is not the correct framework for analyzing capitalist reality. Comradely, Fred ---------------------------- I agree that the sraffian framework is deficient, but I would argue that it is deficient because it assumes a uniform rate of profit.
