Paul C:
The irony here is that Kliman's book (and the TSSI in general) stress
that they are *interpretations* of Marx.   Furthermore, as Anders
emphasized, Kliman's book concerns the question of the internal 
consistency of *Marx's* thought.  Yet, Marx never assumed 
zero wages.  This is an assumption which comes from Sraffa,
not Marx.  This fact that much of the TSSI engagement with
other perspectives has been fought on "Sraffian terrain" is not
generally  recognized by the author: some of the TSSI advocates,
imho,  have become unwittingly Neo-Sraffians.
In solidarity, Jerry
