KLIMOVSKY, Edith Alicia. ALCANCE DE LA MERCANCÍA PATRÓN DE SRAFFA. DOS NUEVAS EXTENSIONES. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2004, vol.23, n.40, pp. 15-27. ISSN 0121-4772.
Based on Sraffa’s standar commodity, we show that it is possible to explain price variation as distribution changes, not just when there is a single technique for each market, as put forward by Sraffa, but also when there is more than one production method. We also show that the concept of relevant surplus for understanding profit lies in surplus of work, so that the Ricardian proposition (according to which profit depends on such surplus) can be verified without the need for supposing value-work theory.
