A comment on Alejandro Ramos' ope-l 4120.

Ale: "take Tugan-Baranowsky 'Theoretische Grundlagen des Marxismus' [1905],
Ch.VII, part III."


Ale: "There, Tugan shows an example in which the increasing productivity of
labor (i.e. an increasing material wealth) implies a rising rate of profit.
Tugan presents this as a **refutation** of Marx's falling rate of profit ....
What would be the advantage to consider this PARTICULAR INTERPRETATION of Marx
as a correct representation of his theory, if it cannot reproduce an important
Marx's statement?"

I think this is an *excellent* question. I, too, would be interested in
hearing people's answers to it.
