 Do you know where?
I usually come accross this analogy always in comments on Smith's invisible-hand, which as I think is in most of the cases wrong.

Does not Engles make this analogy?

Subject: [OPE] labor-value and gravity

I'm writing a paragraph drawing on the analogy between labor-values as
properties of commodities in virtue of the law of value, and weight as
a property of mass in virtue of the law of gravity. I'm certain this
analogy is not original, and I wondered if anyone knew who first
expressed this analogy so I can reference them?

Thanks for any help.
