Anders: In my opinion the French version seriously weakens the textual support for the Hilferding/Okishio/Rowthorn "whose production has cost more labour" - that is the "education cost" solution to the labour reduction problem. Paul: Why do you think that? There is no coherent argument in the French edition against Hilferdings solution? Whether Hilferding was right or wrong stands on the merits of Hilferding's argument not on what Marx said, unless Marx makes a specific rebutall of the idea that the labour cost of educating workers enters into the labour cost of what these workers themselves produce. As far as I can see Marx makes no such contrary argument.
