under the section 'Value Theory'

I am familiar with the F&M arguments, but not the
empirical evidence, could you give some hints/refs?

BTW - I agree that this is a problem for Marxist
economist - but since they are the "Träger" of
the Marxian heritage - as long as they do not
agree, the diffusion of Marxist economics to
broader layers of economists/social
scientist/political activists will be slow.

My impression is that we are slowly progressing -
i.e. getting rid of the static equilibrium straight jacket.
