as far as I recall there are many discussions of markets and satisfaction of needs and I took them as discussions of circulation and consumption. Was that wrong?

Addendum:  Let's not forget that since it was first written the _Manifesto
The Communist Party_  was more widely read and more influential than
all of the other writings by Marx and Engels (... combined?)   In a very
sense, it came to express for most Marxists what Marxism meant and there
wasn't an emphasis on the role of  circulation and consumption for
capitalism in
that popular, but early, work of Marx and Engels.
