Talking about engaging with others' views, the statement at
issue -- "I do not see that the inclusion of services under
Commodity undermines anything but the long-discredited
*embodied* labour theory of value" -- is itself pretty
pugnacious, given the number of people associated with ope-l who
have spent a lot of intellectual energy defending and
quantifying that theory.
