I don't agree with this point Riccardo. Sraffa's system is half an equilibrium system. Sraffians cannot agree whether his theory is about self-replacing equilibrium, or a novel event describing the production of surplus yet to be distributed (note the absence of the real distribution of income as given data in PCMC). In some respects it is a failed attempt to get some kind of dynamic analysis from linear algebra. Sraffa's thinking is not independent of the static/dynamic issue, it falls between it. The tools of linear algebra, which Sraffa employed, are inherently static.
