Dear Prof. Itoh

I have checked my computer for viruses using a programme called InoculateIT.

I was never able to completely finish reading your book Political Economy
of Socialism but I will get a new copy now and do that. I am in agreement
with the basic thrust of that book, but I think we need also construct a
theory of transition and a theory of a "purely socialist society" (to mimic
Uno's terminology). I think in doing that we have to ignore a lot of old
dogmatic Marxism and creatively think through the problems of economic
reality arising when we try to enact a socialist transformation.

I will get back to you about all that in more detail.
