Hi Paula:
Well, I think your claim that services can not be commodities is chock
full of unexamined assumptions and circular reasoning but if we haven't
made progress in exposing those assumptions/circular reasoning to
the other yet then I don't think we're going to. I have pointed you to
some literature which explains this matter in greater depth. What
literature from your perspective can you point me towards?
In solidarity, Jerry
