If you feel motivated to do so it will certainly help the discussion.
However, I am having trouble keeping up. And this needs to be a
dialogue. In consequence, I think it might be better to first gain
clarity on the difference between real-cost labour-value accounting
and Sraffian labour-value accounting before looking back to the texts
for evidence for and against each scheme. In this respect, I think
Ajit's discussion of the corn-economy example is more fruitful at this

Best wishes,
